Subject [jira] Commented: (SYNAPSE-246) Inappropriate test strategy in MailEchoRawXMLTest
Date Sat, 03 May 2008 16:56:55 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SYNAPSE-246?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12594010#action_12594010

Andreas Veithen commented on SYNAPSE-246:
-----------------------------------------

Running the test case now causes a javax.mail.AuthenticationFailedException. I checked the
accounts and synapse.test.1 has been disabled.

> The unit tests in MailEchoRawXMLTest test the mail transport by sending mails to a Gmail
account, connecting to smtp.gmail.com and pop.gmail.com. This strategy is inappropriate for
several reasons:
> 1) It introduces a dependency external to the test itself.
> 2) The tests will fail when executed on a machine not connected to the Internet or from
within a network with a restrictive firewall.
> 3) It slows down the execution of the tests.
> 4) Sporadically smtp.gmail.com replies with "421 4.4.5 Server busy, try again later.",
causing the test to fail.
> Maybe we should consider using something like mock-javamail (https://mock-javamail.dev.java.net/)
to make these tests self-containing.
