Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-1452) Make use of jackrabbit.test.scale in test cases
Date Tue, 04 Mar 2008 14:47:41 GMT

Do you mean "It should be up to each test case to know how long it needs to run to verify
some behaviour."? It's not so clear with 'fuzz testing' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuzz_testing).
As the wikipedia article states, such tests have a high benefit to cost ratio. That's the
reason to write them. But they are not 'typical' functional tests that test just one issue.

A good example is a parser test. Generally a parser shouldn't throw NullPointerException and
such. It's quite easy to generate random statements and check if the parser throws weird exception.
Such a test may find 85% of the bugs if run for 1 second, and additional 10% if run for 1
minute. If we have  10 such tests, it's also 85% in 10 second and additional 10% in 10 minutes.
It's good if you run such tests quickly before each checkin; but it would slow down development
if you always run them for one minute. But the nightly build (or other CI installations) should
run such tests for a longer time.

> There are already a number of longer running test cases in jackrabbit-core, but they
are all disabled because they otherwise make building jackrabbit-core a very long task.
> Those tests should make use of the jackrabbit.test.scale property and per default (scale
= 1) run within a short time.
