Test Specification

Overview

The Test Specification will detail a 1:1 mapping from specification to test case.
Each test specification in the list will include:

These details will then be used as the basis of each test that is created allowing for better maintainability in the test code.

Operational Test Cases

This section enumerates the various operational tests described in the Test Plan identified from the Functional Specification. This text should form the basis of the Technical Documentation for the specified test class.

Broker Test Suite

The Broker test suite validates that the follow log messages as specified in the Functional Specification.

BRK-1001 : Startup : Version: <Version> Build: <Build>
BRK-1002 : Starting : Listening on <Transport> port <Port>
BRK-1003 : Shuting down : <Transport> port <Port>
BRK-1004 : Ready
BRK-1005 : Stopped
BRK-1006 : Using configuration : <path>
BRK-1007 : Using logging configuration : <path>

These messages should only occur during startup. The tests need to verify the order of messages. In the case of the BRK-1002 and BRK-1003 the respective ports should only be available between the two log messages.

Performance Test Case

In addition to the performance test suite an additional performance test needs to be written that can be run with this new logging enabled and disabled so that an attempt at quantifying any impact can be made.

Test Structure

The test should perform the following actions:

  1. Connect a client
  2. Create a channel/JMS Session
  3. Create an exchange
  4. Create a queue
  5. Bind the exchange and queue
  6. Create a subscriber on the queue
  7. Close the Subscriber
  8. Close the Session
  9. Close the Connection

This will ensure that we hit as many of the new logging routines as possible.
If this test should also be run prior to any code changes so that our current performance can be recorded.

Risks

Testing of this nature is dependant on a lot of items that are out of the tests control such as:

  1. CPU scheduling
  2. CPU performance
  3. Load
  4. GC

As a result the test cannot be guaranteed to produce the same results each time. To mitigate this risk running the test in a loop an reporting an average value of 10-20 runs should provide a more stable response.
Leaving the broker startup/shutdown out of the test loop will help improve the tests performance and repeatability.
