vdsm now have UT suits for developer, but sometimes building and

introduce a sub package as VT suits.
UT: for developers, more likely a white box, running on building
VT: for user and deployment, more likely a black box, running on
product or testing environment, all known issue should be covered.
1 modify building system to generate package: vdsm-VT.rpm.
I would prefer the package name 'vdsm-test.rpm' and this package should include
unit tests and verification tests.
2 install as an option, after install, user type "vdsm-VT" would make
the test begin.
The test runner should be able to run the full suite of unit tests and
verification tests (with an option to run only unit tests or only verification
tests). This can be the same program that we use in the build environment
except that it will set the PYTHONPATH differently to target the installed
good idea, checking on the details of vdsm-hack in tests.
1 Going to place cases in vdsm project in ./tests/VT.
2 On installation will move some useful UT cases into VT.
If you follow my approach above, you would simply package the whole tests/
directory and no copying would be necessary.
3 use same framework UT used.
4 two sub dir in test/VT: user_case_test;general_test.
What is the difference between these two types of tests?
user_cases would holds tests simulating the scenario user calling
vdsm, and it could be examples for user. xmlrpc(vdscli) and rest-api
cases would go here. I guess xmlrpc testcases already exist in engine
side, and moving them here makes vdsm more independent and robust.
general_test would holds test detecting target environment problem,
such as authority settings, and thread pipe tests, etc.
The names of the two directories are not good, need to be justified.
It is just a scratch from my mind, so I'd like hear your opinions.
Thanks for the idea! Do you have a sample test for the verification test suite?
Will it be your pipe deadlock test?
Yeah, plan to place the test in it.
As summary, I guess a better structure of test would be as following:
