Python Broker System Test Suite
This is a suite of python client tests that exercise and verify broker functionality. Python allows us to rapidly develop client test scenarios and provides a 'neutral' set of tests that can run against any AMQP-compliant broker.
The python/tests directory contains a collection of python modules, each containing several unittest classes, each containing a set of test methods that represent some test scenario. Test classes inheirt
qpid/testlib.py, it inherits
unittest.TestCase but adds some qpid-specific
setUp/tearDown and convenience functions.
TODO: get pydoc generated up to qpid wiki or website automatically?
Running the tests
Simplest way to run the tests:
- Run a broker on the default port
For additional options:
Until we complete functionality, tests may fail because the tested
functionality is missing in the broker. To skip expected failures
in the C++ or Java brokers:
If you fix a failure, please remove it from the corresponding list.
