Subject fixing an httpd test which is confused about which modules are loaded in the test conf
Date Fri, 16 Oct 2009 19:32:04 GMT
The mod_info test (t/modules/info.t) asks Apache::Test::config() for a
list of modules.  It then expects each of those modules to be reported
by mod_info.  But some of those modules are not actually loaded
because of modules which are skipped by

#XXX mod_jk requires JkWorkerFile or JkWorker to be configured
#skip it for now, tomcat has its own test suite anyhow.
#XXX: requires other settings in addition to LoadModule
#XXX: blocks fast requests that tests are doing
my @autoconfig_skip_module = qw(mod_jk.c mod_casp2.c mod_bwshare.c);

If mod_jk is in the configuration being tested, the mod_info test will
fail because it expects mod_jk to be reported by mod_info, even though
the LoadModule for mod_jk is skipped.

One possible fix is to consult should_skip_module() to see if it was
skipped from the test httpd.conf file too:

 @actual = sort @actual;
 @expected = sort @expected;

Another possible fix is to omit skipped modules from the module list:

         # sometimes people have broken system-wide httpd.conf files,

So is either of these a reasonable fix?  (It doesn't seem right that
info.t has to worry about modules which were found in the
configuration but not loaded, but I don't know what is expected of the
configuration object.)
