Running the Testsuite

The testsuite module contains several submodules including the following:

  • "smoke" -- core tests that should be run as part of every build of the AS. Failures here will fail the build.
  • "integration" -- the full integration testsuite. Should be run with no failures before any major commits.
  • "benchmark" -- tests used to compare performance against other releases or previous builds
  • "stress" -- tests of the server's ability to perform properly while under stress

To run the basic testsuite including smoke tests from the root directory, run the build script "./" or "build.bat":

For basic smoke tests, simply: "./ test"

For integration tests: "./ test -Pintegration-tests"

For benchmark tests: "./ test -Pbenchmark-tests"

For stress tests: "./ test -Pstress-tests"

To run all the tests

$ ./ install -PallTests

Using Eclipse

  1. Install the latest version of eclipse
  2. Make sure Xmx in eclipse.ini is at least 512M, and it's using java 6
  3. Launch eclispe and install the m2eclipse plugin, make sure it uses your repo configs (get it from:
  4. In eclipse preferences Java->Compiler->Errors/Warnings->Deprecated and restricted set forbidden reference to WARNING
  5. In eclipse preferences Java->Code Style, import the cleanup, templates, and formatter configs in ide-configs/eclipse
  6. In eclipse preferences Java->Editor->Save Actions enable "Additional Actions", and deselect all actions except for "Remove trailing whitespace"
  7. Use import on the root pom, which will pull in all modules
  8. Wait (m2eclipse takes awhile on initial import)
