Subject Re: [users@httpd] Code coverage while running web server
Date Sat, 19 Dec 2009 00:30:43 GMT
I am referring to the Apache code written in C. I would like to see if all
the paths are exercised for - request processing, resource management,
connection pooling, and configuration directives of the apache core. This
would be more like functional testing of apache.
