Reviewed: Python Testing by Daniel Arbuckle
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’ve recently had the pleasure of reading “Python Testing: An easy and convenient approach to testing your python projects” from Packt Publishing. It’s been a quick read but a solid set of instructions on the different methods for the subject.

The book starts out very quickly with details about the various methods that are available, the means of automation for testing, and of course the environment you’d want to be in for working on the subjects that the book covers. It then, in the second chapter, moves into the guts of testing by describing the basics of doctest via syntax and some simple examples, and then moves on to a real world example via the AVL tree. It’s all very basic

MariaDB Buildbot configuration file published
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I have now published the Buildbot configuration file that we use for our continuous integration tests in our Buildbot setup. Every push into main and development branches of MariaDB is built and tested on a range of platforms to catch and fix any problems early (and we also test MySQL releases before merging to easily see whether any new problems already existed in MySQL or were introduced by something specific to MariaDB).

The configuration is included in the Tools for MariaDB Launchpad project.

Now, the Buildbot configuration file is not something that most MariaDB users will

Building MariaDB/MySQL with Buildbot and KVM
+5 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Testing and automation. These two are key to ensuring high quality of software releases.

Ever since I worked briefly in the team at MySQL AB that is responsible for creating the binary (and source) packages of MySQL releases, I have had the vision of a fully automated release procedure. Whenever someone pushes a new commit to the release branch revision control tree, the continuous integration test framework should kick in and do all the steps needed for producing release packages:

  • Checkout the new revision.
  • Build a source tarball, and save it.
  • For each platform, build a binary package from the source tarball. The build should be done in a freshly installed machine without any revision control checkouts, previous build trees, or extra installed software, to ensure that no unwanted

Jeremy's article on MySQL Sandbox in Linux Magazine
+6 Vote Up -1Vote Down



Jeremy Zawodny of Craiglist has written a kind article about MySQL Sandbox.
The article, MySQL Sandbox: Treat MySQL Instances like Virtual Machines, is a practical test of MySQL Sandbox with usage examples and warm appreciation.
Thanks, Jeremy!

The article was published in July but I noticed it only today. I guess I should pay more attention to my favorite topics when I travel.
The mysterious Storage Engine Independent Test Suite
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Recently Mark observed that we now all need a storage engine independent test suite, Sun included! Well, as far as I know, there is such a thing at Sun, sort of. Apparently it has been used to test PBXT and other engines, but I've heard it is not in good enough shape to be released.

But my question is, why not release it anyway? We could turn it into an engine community project. I believe there are enough engine developers out there to get this moving forward.

The secret is to start small, and just get a few tests to run with all engines. Then additional tests can be added step by step. Engines need a way to specify that they want to skip a test entirely (e.g. transactional tests), and it should be easy to customize results for various engines.

An example of a simple and

MySQL Labs provide server snapshots
Employee_Team +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL opens its labs to the community. Users who want to test the early builds, before they are released for general availability can get them from MySQL Labs.

There is a detailed announcement that warns against using these binaries in production, but encourages everyone to test them. A companion tutorial explains how to use the snapshots to test the InnoDB plugin, which was released recently, and it is included in the latest MySQL 5.1 binaries.

MySQL Labs : server snapshots available for download
Employee +9 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Users familiar with the MySQL development process will remember that our developers use a tool called pushbuild, which builds the server code with the latest changes, using several operating systems, and runs the test suite.

This tool produces one binary package for each platform where the test runs, and every day there are a few dozen of such packages, waiting to be deleted and replaced by the ones created with the next build.

For long time, several people suggested publishing these binaries for the community. Each time, there was some minor or major impediment, such as getting together different teams and requesting resources from a third one. But
