Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9361) Write a set of tests to more strictly define the expected behavior of filesystems
Date Fri, 08 Mar 2013 14:42:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9361?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13597174#comment-13597174
] 

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-9361:
----------------------------------------

These tests must all be enabled/disabled dynamically by the FS specific subclasses, so that
tests that can run against a filesystem for any reason (e.g. no S3 credentials) can be downgraded
to a skip -which then appears in the test reports. This will make clear that tests were not
run, whereas today the JUnit3-derived tests are named to not match the *Test pattern, and
must be explicitly run by hand.

> {{FileSystem}} and {{FileContract}} aren't tested rigorously enough -while HDFS gets
tested downstream, other filesystems, such as blobstore bindings, don't.
> The only tests that are common are those of {{FileSystemContractTestBase}}, which HADOOP-9258
shows is incomplete.
> I propose 
> # writing more tests which clarify expected behavior
> # testing operations in the interface being in their own JUnit4 test classes, instead
of one big test suite. 
> # Having each FS declare via a properties file what behaviors they offer, such as atomic-rename,
atomic-delete, umask, immediate-consistency -test methods can downgrade to skipped test cases
if a feature is missing.
