The latest release of MySQL Sandbox, 3.0.12, has integrated plugin installation features, as mentioned in my previous post.
Not only that. This version has also more tests, fixes a couple of bugs, and introduces basic instrumentation. Now each script released with MySQL Sandbox, and every one that the Sandbox itself installs, can leave a trail in a …

Down the rabbit hole
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Generally I avoid going down rabbit holes but today I decided to see how deep a particular testing rabbit hole went. This post is a third in what seems be a continuing series of programming anecdotes. It’s not particularly MySQL-related so you can stop reading here unless you grok code stuff.

Before beginning work on issue 720 I ran the mk-table-checksum test suite to make sure it was in working order. No sense writing new tests and code when the old tests and code aren’t reliable. I actually …

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 …

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 …

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. …

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. …

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 …
