Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-516) Need to incorporate client backward/forward compatibility testing into testing procedures.
Date Fri, 07 Oct 2005 15:43:49 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-516?page=all ]

Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-516:

    Attachment: bug516.diff

This patch introduces a small JUnit test for checking the compatibility of clients
and servers running at different rev levels and on different vms. This
test initially simply checks that the expected datatypes can be
declared, inserted, selected, and coerced and that they appear as the
correct JDBC types in DatabaseMetaData and ResultSetMetaData.

Please note that when committed, this patch will require developers to
download JUnit so that Derby will build correctly and derbyall will
run cleanly.

The full suite runs correctly on my cygwin platform, testing all
combinations of clients, servers, and vms. Derbyall also runs cleanly,
including a single configuration of the compatibility test.

A brief description of this patch follows:

1) BUILDING.txt has been amended to tell developers that they must
   download JUnit.

2) java/testing/README.htm has been amended to point at a web page
   which describes how to run the compatibility tests. It points at

3) DerbyJUnitTest.java is a superclass for Derby JUnit tests. It is a
   useful place to put extra assertion machinery not included in the
   base JUnit classes.

4) JDBCDriverTest.java is the actual JUnit test which checks expected

5) testScript.xml is an ant harness for running all combinations of
   the compatibility test. Hopefully, we can discard this harness when
   a more robust JUnit harness is checked into Derby.

6) CompatibilityTest.java is a thin wrapper which runs one
   configuration (embedded) of JDBCDriverTest inside the derbyall

7) Sed.java has been amended to filter out JUnit diagnostics which
   derbyall interprets as noise. This filtering allows derbyall canons
   to be empty for JUnit tests.

> New versions of the Derby network server should work with old versions of the network
client.  New versions of the Derby network client should work with old versions of the server.
 Currently that means that the 10.1 client should be tested on the trunk.     The 10.2 client
definitely needs to be tested with the 10.1  server before release, but it would be good to
start testing snapshots of 10.2 client on the 10.1 branch earlier.
> Note:
> Bug fixes may mean that the canons differ for different versions.
> The test harness I think is set up to allow different masters for different versions.
 It at least has that functionality for the DerbyNet framework
>  and it could  be expanded to cover DerbyNetClient.  The way it works is that
> the harness checks for a masters in the following order:
> functionTests/master/<framework>/ver<version>  
> functionTests/master/<framework>/
> functionTests/master/
