NEW: Solaris Package Companion v0.8.1 / Testing Tool v0.1
By gbrunett-Oracle on Aug 04, 2008
As is my tradition when a bug is found, I try and publish a little something extra as a mea cupla. This time is no different. In addition to version 0.8.1 of the Solaris Package Companion, I have also published a testing tool for the same.
The testing tool, called spc-test-v0.1.ksh is also available from the project page. This tool can test multiple versions of the tool against multiple repositories which is pretty cool when checking for regressions. There are currently 48 tests although tests can be easily added or removed as needed. It can optionally display the results to the screen, but by default it records them in a directory where a basic consistency check is performed to detect differences in output (for the same repository) resulting from the use of different versions of the tool. This is not intended to be an all encompassing test suite or even a piece of production code, but rather a basic sanity check to make sure the key functions are working as expected.
Thanks again, Clive!
Keep the suggestions, reports and fixes coming!
