Open POSIX* Test Suite Overview ----------------------------------- The POSIX Test Suite is an open source test suite with the goal of performing conformance, functional, and stress testing of the IEEE 1003.1-2001 System Interfaces specification in a manner that is agnostic to any given implementation. While active development and testing is currently happening on Linux, our choice of portable tools should make this test suite usable on any POSIX operating system. All code is distributed under the GNU General Public License v2. A copy of this license is contained in the COPYING file. This document gives a brief overview of the test suite, including its design goals, implementation, and how to contribute. Within these sections, we describe where to find more detailed information. 2. Design Goals ---------------- This project was created with the following design goals: - Enable assertion based traceability for conformance testing of POSIX specifications. We wanted to capture enough data to make deterministic statements about our coverage of the POSIX specification. - Give the ability to send test case source to bug reports to appropriate open source projects when our test cases revealed bugs in those projects. (Meaning we wanted fairly simple, self-contained test cases which illuminated a single failure.) - Make it easy for test cases to be contributed. 3. Implementation ------------------ This project will cover conformance, functional, stress, performance, and speculative testing. Conformance, functional, and stress tests are the only tests formally documented and enabled by our framework, with our focus mainly on conformance; however, the other types of testing will be added as the need arises. For more information on these types of testing, under 'Documenation' see: HOWTO_ConformanceTest - info on creation and structure of conformance tests HOWTO_Functional- - info on creation and structure of functional StressTest and stress tests For additional information on how to build and run the tests in this suite, see Documentation/HOWTO_RunTests. 4. Developer Docs & Resources ------------------------------ The following files give developers information on how to write test cases for the project (under Documentation): HOWTO_Assertions - describes format of the assertions files used to map test case descriptions to test cases HOWTO_BoundaryTest - information about testing boundary conditions HOWTO_CodingGuidelines- describes coding guidelines for this project HOWTO_Coverage - describes format of COVERAGE.<area> files HOWTO_DefinitionsTest - ideas behind testing POSIX header files HOWTO_ResultCodes - standardized return codes for tests HOWTO_Tagging - describes how to tag files for inclusion in a release For additional information on how to build and run the tests in this suite, see HOWTO_RunTests. 5. How to Contribute --------------------- * Patches welcome! * When you create a new test, please fill out an assertion description if none is available. Create a simple C [.c] or shell script [.sh] snippet that exploits the assertion and returns 0 or !0 [passes/fails]. Please name the file after the assertion it tests-dash-the number of the test [up to you, we can do the naming for you also]. The code snippets need to be as simple as possible, for the sake of all. Please start them with a commentary briefly describing how you will test the assertion. The idea is that at the end, we can have automatic tools extracting the data from the XML and source files to generate reports. 6.
