Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5726) Make it more difficult to forget calling super.tearDown() from BaseJDBCTestCase's subclasses
Date Mon, 30 Apr 2012 16:37:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5726?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13265015#comment-13265015
] 

Kathey Marsden commented on DERBY-5726:
---------------------------------------

This sounds like a good idea to ensure teardown gets called and things get cleaned up.  I
remember sometime back doing a test cleanup cleanup effort, but can't exactly remember my
motivation. It might have been making sure things run in the default heap or maybe it had
something to do with permgen space.  Why is the cleanup important?

> Many of the classes that extend BaseJDBCTestCase and override the tearDown() method,
forget to call super.tearDown(), and thereby prevent resources from being freed after completion.
We should add a mechanism that enforces the correct behaviour.
> If we were starting from scratch, we might have made BaseJDBCTestCase.tearDown() final
and added a new overridable method that was called from BaseJDBCTestCase.tearDown() before
it freed the statements and connections. Then there would be no way to prevent BaseJDBCTestCase.tearDown()
from running in the subclasses. That would however require us to change all existing overrides
of BaseJDBCTestCase.tearDown() (current count: 131), which would be a chunk of work.
> I'd rather suggest that we add an override of runBare() in BaseJDBCTestCase that asserts
that the connection has been cleared out when a test case has completed successfully. Something
like this:
>     public void runBare() throws Throwable {
>         super.runBare();
>         // It's quite common to forget to call super.tearDown() when
>         // overriding tearDown() in sub-classes.
>         assertNull(
>             "Connection should be null by now. " +
>             "Missing call to super.tearDown()?", conn);
>     }
> Then it would still be possible to forget to call super.tearDown(), but it would be discovered
when trying to run the test.
> Adding the above method to BaseJDBCTestCase and running InternationalConnectTest gave
this result:
> .....F.F....F
> Time: 5,748
> There were 3 failures:
> 1) testDriverManagerConnect(org.apache.derbyTesting.functionTests.tests.jdbcapi.InternationalConnectTest)junit.framework.AssertionFailedError:
Connection should be null by now. Missing call to super.tearDown()?
