Here's how to test session expiration (haven't tried this in a while): http://github.com/phunt/zkexamples
It would be great to have some test infrastructure/examples/docs/strategies available for developers (zk client users). If someone would be interested to workon/contribute this we'd be pretty psyched to work with you on it.

Now that I've got things working pretty smoothly with my ZooKeeper setup in normal operation, I'd like to test some of the recovery stuff that I've put into my application. I'd like to make sure that if a connection to ZK fails, then my application recovers appropriately (possibly by giving up). Obviously I could do some of this by shutting off the server and restarting it, but I'd like to be a bit more systematic, if possible. Is there any way to inject failures into the ZK client so that I can test without having to randomly kill servers/clients? Thanks, Steve
