Subject [jira] [Created] (PROTON-238) Initial CTest support
Date Wed, 13 Feb 2013 19:24:12 GMT
Cliff Jansen created PROTON-238:

             Summary: Initial CTest support
                 Key: PROTON-238
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PROTON-238
             Project: Qpid Proton
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: proton-c
    Affects Versions: 0.3
         Environment: Mainly proton-c and interop testing.
            Reporter: Cliff Jansen
            Assignee: Cliff Jansen

This is a proposal for starting to use CMake's built in CTest capabilities in order to allow
a unified test mechanism on multiple platforms.

For the supplied review patch, it assumes that instead of using trunk/config.sh and calling
proton-test directly, you do:

  cd path/to/trunk
  mkdir build
  cd build
  cmake ..

Assuming the make succeeds, this will test two targets for now (proton-c and proton-jni),
but the newer proposed tests (i.e. performance) can be added as well.

Once the desired work flow is captured, this can be tweaked to run in a platform neutral way.
 CMake even has the capability to run CTest from inside the Visual Studio IDE.  Concepts and
strategies are stolen from the qpid/cpp tree.

By default, you just get a brief summary of the tests.  Also try

  ctest -V   [ to see the full output ]
  ctest -N   [ to list the available tests ]
  ctest -R proton-c  [ just run the one test in this case, or a regexp if supplied ]
  ctest -E <regexp>  [ run all tests except ones that match regexp ]

Fancier tests can use cmake scripts to do things in a platform neutral manner (move files
around), run the test from a different directory, etc.  Python scripts and Java programs are
already platform neutral, so there is no need to make changes for those. 

Tests can be conditionally configured (in the example proton-jni will not be configured if
maven or java aren't found).

Note that if you wish to just build and test proton-c, there is no requirement to build from
within the specific directory .../trunk/build.  This restriction currently exists for testing
proton-jni using maven, but perhaps that can be relaxed in future.
