Dear Wiki user,

    * Define methods within your class whose names begin with {{{test}}}, and call JUnit's
many assert methods to verify conditions; these methods will be executed when you run {{{ant
    * You can run all the unit test with the command {{{ant test}}}, or you can run a specific
unit test with the command {{{ant -Dtestcase=<class name without package prefix> test}}}
(for example {{{ant -Dtestcase=TestFileSystem test}}})

+ === Add a Unit Test ===
+ There are two kinds of unit tests in Hive:
+  * Normal unit test: These are used by testing a particular component of Hive.
+   * We just need to add a new class (name must start with "Test") in */src/test directory.
+   * We can run "ant test -Dtestcase=TestAbc" where TestAbc is the name of the new class.
This will test only the new testcase, which will be faster than "ant test" which tests all
+  * A new query: If the new feature can be tested using Hive command line, we just need to
add a new *.q file and a new *.q.out file:
+   * If the feature is added in ql
+    * Add a new XXXXXX.q file in ql/src/test/queries/clientpositive
+    * Run "ant test -Dtestcase=TestCliDriver -Dqfile=XXXXXX.q -Doverwrite=true -Dtest.silent=false".
This will generate a new XXXXXX.q.out file in ql/src/test/results/clientpositive.
+   * If the feature is added in contrib
+    * Do the steps above, replacing "ql" with "contrib", and "TestCliDriver" with "TestContribCliDriver".
