Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2279) Add a MockDirectoryFactory (or similar) for Solr tests
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2011 11:01:47 GMT


Shai Erera commented on SOLR-2279:

I debug-traced MultiCoreEmbeddedTest and this is what I found: the test opens two indexes,
one under a temp directory, and one under trunk/solr/example/multicore/core0/data/index. The
one under temp is populated alright (and exists), while the one under solr/example (to clarify
-- this directory is expected to be found on the checkout, so it seems) is empty, and hence
the test fails on IndexNotFoundException.

I don't understand the test, so I cannot fix it. Just put it here in case someone else knows
this code. I don't understand why this test passes w/ RAMDirectoryFactory.

Also, under solr/example/multicore/core0/conf, solrconfig.xml lists dirFactory to be StandardDirFactory.
I don't know what are the implications of this on the test, but pointing it out as well.

Hope this info helps someone debug and fix the test :).

> Currently, all Lucene tests open directories with newDirectory() [and soon-to-be added
newFSDirectory() which always ensures the directory returned is an FSDir subclass, see LUCENE-2804
for this]. Additionally the directory is wrapped with MockDirectoryWrapper.
> This has a number of advantages:
> * By default the directory implementation is random, but you can easily specify a specific
impl e.g. When proposing a change to one of our directory
implementations, we can run all tests with it this way... it would be good for Solr tests
to respect this too.
> * The test framework (LuceneTestCase before/afterclass) ensures that these directories
are properly closed, if not, it causes the test to fail with a stacktrace of where you
> first opened the directory.
> * MockDirectoryWrapper.close() then ensures that there are no resource leaks by default,
when you open a file they save the stacktrace of where you opened it from. If you try to close
the directory without say, closing an IndexReader, it fails with the stacktrace of where you
opened the reader from. This is helpful for tracking down resource leaks. Currently Solr warns
if it cannot delete its test temporary directory, but this is better since you know exactly
where the resource leak came from. This can be disabled with an optional setter which we should
probably expose for some tests that have known leaks like SpellCheck.
> * MockDirectoryWrapper enforce consistent test behavior on any operating system, as it
won't be dependent on the return value of
> * MockDirectoryWrapper has a number of other checks and features, such as simulating
a crash, simulating disk full, emulating windows (where you can't delete open files), etc.
