Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-1257) a distributed junit test runner
Date Fri, 13 Apr 2007 17:53:15 GMT

Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-1257:
--------------------------------------

Bootstrapping could be a little complicated here: do we use an older version of Hadoop to
test the new version?  Since Hudson runs on a 4-processor box, we might get some mileage by
simply getting junit tests to run in parallel.  Ant's parallel task is almost appropriate,
except there's no easy way I can see to get each junit test to be a sub-task of a parallel
task.  But perhaps a simple parallel-junit task could be written for this.  Test could still
be run in separate JVMs, and we could run as many at once as there are CPUs (a feature of
the parallel task).  A 4x speedup would be very welcome!

> It would be nice to have a distributed junit runner that would run 100 instances of each
test a separate map, and use counters to count how many times each test passed/failed/hung.
