Subject [jira] [Commented] (QPID-5307) Change test scripts to cross-platform language
Date Thu, 07 Nov 2013 15:03:22 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-5307?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13816022#comment-13816022

Alan Conway commented on QPID-5307:
-----------------------------------

+1 on a single portable language. I prefer ruby but pragmatically python seems the better
choice since many/most of the existing tests are in python. I'm assigned to this but won't
be able to work on it for a while so if someone else wants to take it please feel free.

> The C++ tree's test suite drivers are primarily shell scripts. Many were duplicated as
Windows PowerShell scripts along the way. However, not all scripts were PowerShell-ized, and
the dual set of test scripts is not maintained in sync. Someone (Cliff?) suggested a while
back that the test driver scripts be written in a common language across Linux and Windows,
and for other platforms as well.
> Python, Perl, Ruby are all possible choices - python and ruby need to be on build systems
anyway for code generation. What do people think about a) this idea in general, b) language
to use?
