Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6332) Large-scale Automated Test Framework
Date Wed, 19 May 2010 21:16:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6332?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12869351#action_12869351
] 

Konstantin Boudnik commented on HADOOP-6332:
--------------------------------------------

The main reason this has been done as a part of _test infrastructure_ for Common (Hdfs, MR
are coming) is that the framework is non-invasive and doesn't have any footprint in the production
code of Hadoop. However, system tests need more functionality than a regular public API provides.
To achieve this we had to use AOP. For the very least, compiled aspects have to be provided
and then woven into Hadoop's classes. Framework part (aspects and all) might be kept separate
from the main code tree. But at any rate this means changes in the build process. And it also
will add a lot of complexity to the framework development/maintenance.

> Hadoop would benefit from having a large-scale, automated, test-framework. This jira
is meant to be a master-jira to track relevant work.
> ----
> The proposal is a junit-based, large-scale test framework which would run against _real_
clusters.
> There are several pieces we need to achieve this goal:
> # A set of utilities we can use in junit-based tests to work with real, large-scale hadoop
clusters. E.g. utilities to bring up to deploy, start & stop clusters, bring down tasktrackers,
datanodes, entire racks of both etc.
> # Enhanced control-ability and inspect-ability of the various components in the system
e.g. daemons such as namenode, jobtracker should expose their data-structures for query/manipulation
etc. Tests would be much more relevant if we could for e.g. query for specific states of the
jobtracker, scheduler etc. Clearly these apis should _not_ be part of the production clusters
- hence the proposal is to use aspectj to weave these new apis to debug-deployments.
> ----
> Related note: we should break up our tests into at least 3 categories:
> # src/test/unit -> Real unit tests using mock objects (e.g. HDFS-669 & MAPREDUCE-1050).
> # src/test/integration -> Current junit tests with Mini* clusters etc.
> # src/test/system -> HADOOP-6332 and it's children
