[cdt-dev] CDT regression tests
I would like to try again with getting information
about the CDT nightly builds and regression tests.
I have two main questions:
1. Where are the scripts and commands used to do the
nightly CDT builds and run the nightly regression tests? What host platform are
these run on?
2. In 3.3, when the regression tests are run
interactively, there are over 11,000 tests. In the nightly tests, there are only
about 4,000. Why is there such a difference?
Where can I find
information about how the CDT nightly builds are done? Are these script based?
What java compiler is currently being used? How are the tests run?
I have tried looking
in CVS and have found some old files that are out-of-date. Where are the current
I am currently
working with Europa and downloaded the eclipse-Automated-Tests-3.3.2.zip. It
contains a runtests script for linux that doesn't seem to have any chance of
working so I suspect this zip file is outdated or is only used on Windows
systems. Nonetheless, I have modified the runtests script and some of the other
files and have something that runs some CDT tests but I have a couple of
Sometimes the tests
seem to hang. Particularly in a call to a addr2line and c++filt programs. If I
kill those programs, then the tests proceed.
The results are
slightly different but I am not using exactly the same versions as
shown in the nightly builds so I am not comparing apples to apples. I
do get some many failures and just a couple of errors. I assume at least
one of the errors is due to me killing the addr2line and c++filt
The number of tests
in my batch run matches well with the official nightly runs but this
number seems considerably different from running the tests within Eclipse.
The number of tests in the batch runs is 4021 while the nightly build shows
3931. I am getting one additional package for
org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.tests.suite (93 additional tests) and the number
of tests I show for org.eclipse.cdt.core.suite is slightly less (3247 versus
When run within
eclipse and picking org.eclipse.cdt.core.tests, it says it is running 11683
tests. Considerably more than the 3247 shown in the batch
Is it possible to
run all the tests in batch mode?
