Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1762) Improve javascript test suite
Date Fri, 05 Apr 2013 18:03:16 GMT

Wendall Cada commented on COUCHDB-1762:
---------------------------------------

Initially I thought the issue may be something in the tests causing the interpreter to crash.
However, after more careful inspection of the process, there appears to be a couple issues
arising.

First, the method used to check if the server is running could easily fail during a restart.
This is because it would often return a false positive by checking before the process had
time to exit.

Second, the method used for wait/sleep is not ideal. Using couchjs for running the tests is
fairly limited in capabilities. So code would need to be added to include some time of proper
sleep function. I tried this, but it felt like a LOT more work than it was worth. So I just
inserted some artificial timeouts in more ideal locations so the restarts don't cause as many
issues.

> In 1.3.0, there is a new part of the test suite to run the javascript tests from the
command line. Some people are experiencing intermittent failures on different hardware/OS
configurations. Mostly, tests hanging or timing out and failing. These are really hard to
troubleshoot, as they all pass just fine if run individually.
