Subject Re: Clean-dir script
Date Mon, 05 May 2008 20:47:00 GMT
The script is used by the cpp test profiles. When QpidTestCase is using 
an external broker it will check the exit status of the broker after 
each test. If the broker exits with a non-zero status (i.e. it core 
dumps), QpidTestCase will check the broker.clean system property and 
exec it if present. This prevents a single broker crash from causing all 
subsequent tests to fail.

As far as I can see there is no need to make this cross-platform until 
the cpp broker is also cross-platform. I think it would be a mistake to 
hard-code this behavior into QpidTestCase as that would make 
QpidTestCase less capable of running against external brokers other than 
our own. If a pure Java solution is required then we probably need to 
develop some sort of broker control interface that the test framework 
can use to start, stop, and clean up after external brokers.
