Adobe AIR SQLite Stress Tester


I wrote this tool because I originally suspected there was something wrong with Adobe AIR's SQLite implementation when under stress in an application I'm writing.

Turns out that wasn't the case - the GC was collecting SQLStatement objects or callbacks too early and so it wasn't able to notify the application that the SQL statement had completed. That made it look like the application hung due to the database.

Anyway, seeing as I had written it, I thought I might as well put it out there. There isn't anything wrong with the AIR SQLite implementation as far as I know.


Install the AIR app, and run it. It has a functional GUI for changing the various settings and seeing the results.

There isn't much code, and it is pretty self-explanatory. The one difficult part would probably be the state machine - check the constructor of StressTestSM to see the state table.

Then what?

Not much really. The results should only be considered in terms of stress testing. They are not very useful in terms of performance because the application works using a state machine. The state machine switches states based on a timer, therefore there is a delay between the SQL statement finishing, and another starting again, as the machine switches through the states until it comes back to that state. I guess that makes the results comparable between machines.
