Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-8125) file transfer plugin tests often crash the mobilespec test app
Date Mon, 08 Dec 2014 23:59:12 GMT


Dmitry Blotsky commented on CB-8125:

Hey [~iclelland]! Thanks for the feedback. I'll respond to your questions in the order you
posed them.  

* There was a bug in spec 17. Nice catch! Fixed now. Specs 28 and 29 however, do indeed fail
or time out on some platforms.

* Indeed, many of the progress assertions have been removed, and they have been replaced with
a common {{defaultOnProgressHandler}}, which can be checked for having been called. Because
it is not guaranteed that an {{onprogress}} event fires every time, I did not place that check
in every spec, but only in the specs that explicitly require it (e.g. spec 9, and all upload
specs, hence {{verifyUpload}} has the assert). If it is a legitimate requirement for {{onprogress}}
to fire every time, I will add such a check in {{verifyDownload}}. I was unsure that that
was a hard requirement, so I left it out, since firing the event depends on the size of file
being downloaded, and also on the platform. For example, some Windows platforms and FirefoxOS
do not support progress events ([docs|]).
Do you think we should add that check, with platform-specific excludes?

* The helpers {{writeFile}} and {{deleteFile}} report failures only cosmetically, since they
are test set-up and tear-down and should never fail. However, that is definitely an idealistic
expectation - I modified their failures to be more representative ({{throw}} ing on real errors,
and being more explicit on the log).

* The error block you pasted looks like the log output for specs 28 and 29 when their functionality
is unsupported. The spec prints out {{functionality unsupported}}, followed by the error it
received. I changed that message to be a bit more clear.

Thanks for reviewing the code! Please see the updated pull request for the iterative changes.
