Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-14491) Determine how to test cqlsh in a Python 2.7 environment, including dtests
Date Thu, 07 Jun 2018 23:21:00 GMT


Jason Brown commented on CASSANDRA-14491:

[~mkjellman] spent a lot of time to get dtests onto 3.x. How critical is it that dtests (the
full set) need to run on 2.7?

>                 URL:
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>         Environment:  
> We need to test with at least two versions of Python:
>  * Python 2.7
>  * Python 3.x (need to determine what versions of Python 3 are available by default on
Ubuntu and RHEL/CentOS)
> Additionally, it is recommended to test on at least three platforms:
>  * Ubuntu or other Debian derivative
>  * RHEL, CentOS, or other Red Hat derivative
>  * Windows (unless a consensus has formed around not testing on Windows?)
>            Reporter: Patrick Bannister
>            Priority: Major
>              Labels: cqlsh, test
>             Fix For: 4.x
> It appears that a consensus is forming around maintaining Python 2.7 compatibility for
cqlsh. However, the dtests now run in a Python 3 environment. We need to identify an option
for testing infrastructure for testing cqlsh on Python 2.7, including the dtests.
> Based on experience updating the cqlsh dtests, it is strongly recommended to test in
more than one environment - for example, for Linux, we should test on a Debian derivative
as well as a Red Hat derivative.
