Subject RE: Getting Tomcat Tests
Date Tue, 12 Oct 2004 13:24:00 GMT

There are three sets of tests for Tomcat 5.0.x.


One is what we call the "tester" tests.  These are maintained in the
jakarta-tomcat-catalina CVS module, and ship with Tomcat's source
distribution.  You can compile and run them using the build.xml file you
use to build and package Tomcat.  I think the Ant target is called
"run-tester."  If any of these fails, it's broken.


The second set of tests is the "watchdog" one.  These used to be part of
Tomcat proper, and then were spun off into their own Jakarta project.
They were intended to be a complete Servlet and JSP TCK replacement.
They test to version 2.3, not 2.4, of the Spec.  For Tomcat 5.5, these
tests are no longer used by us.  But we did use them for 4.x and 5.0,
and you of course can use them as well.  There's an Ant target,
"run-watchdog" IIRC, in the main build.xml file you use to build Tomcat,
that will download, compile, and run these Watchdog tests for you.


The final set of tests is comprised of the Servlet and JSP TCKs.  These
are owned by Sun and you must obtain a TCK license from them if you want
to run these tests.  We run these last, after all the Tester (and for
Tomcat before 5.5, also Watchdog) tests pass.
