Subject Re: [DRLVM] Integration checks (was building from svn on FC5)
Date Tue, 27 Jun 2006 10:12:21 GMT
Seems, it is not so easy to define the proper test set...
Let's define target to run the integration test. It may be:
 1) we want to be sure that all were integrated correctly?
 2) or we want to guaranty the 'product quality' for build?
 3) some other?

If target is 1) than we should run minimal tests set (seems, classlib unit
tests over tested VM will enough) on one platform.
If target is 2) than each developer should run all known/defined tests over
all platforms. Seems, is no time for development any more. Everyone will do
the release engineering (RE) work.

So we have 2 questions here:
1) the small list of integration test should be defined. It may be subset of
API unit tests collected as 1 or 2 tests from each API area just to be sure
that all things were integrated successfully.
2) the RE procedure should be defined. Who is responsible to build the HDK
and place it to download page? What tests should be run before it? How often
it should be doing?
It is not so obvious as 1). The procedure may be defined, for example, as:
 - one of committers prepare binary form of HDK and test it on one platform.

 - if all tests passed he placed it to download somewhere and
 - other people test it on other platform.
 - if all tests passed the binaries are promoted and placed to the
'official' download page.

 Thanks, Vladimir

PS. To run some scenario tests actually not integration but functional
testing.
