Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-3184) add LuceneTestCase.rarely()/LuceneTestCase.atLeast()
Date Wed, 08 Jun 2011 19:51:59 GMT
add LuceneTestCase.rarely()/LuceneTestCase.atLeast()

                 Key: LUCENE-3184
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Test
            Reporter: Robert Muir
             Fix For: 3.3, 4.0

in LUCENE-3175, the tests were sped up a lot by using reasonable number of iterations normally,
but cranking up for NIGHTLY.
we also do crazy things more 'rarely' for normal builds (e.g. simpletext, payloads, crazy
merge params, etc)
also, we found some bugs by doing this, because in general our parameters are too fixed.

however, it made the code look messy... I propose some new methods:
instead of some crazy code in your test like:
int numdocs = (TEST_NIGHTLY ? 1000 : 100) * RANDOM_MULTIPLIER;

you use:
int numdocs = atLeast(100);

this will apply the multiplier, also factor in nightly, and finally add some random fudge...
so e.g. in local runs its sometimes 127 docs, sometimes 113 docs, etc.

additionally instead of code like:
if ((TEST_NIGHTLY && random.nextBoolean()) || (random.nextInt(20) == 17)) {

you do
if (rarely()) {

which applies NIGHTLY and also the multiplier (logarithmic growth).
