Writing Tests summary
Most changes to Samba should have a test to demonstrate the bug being fixed, or test the feature being added. Most tests are run using 'make test' from a Samba source tree.
See writing and running Samba tests but in particular:
- Writing Torture Tests: smbtorture in the source4/torture directory and provides direct C protocol tests.
- Writing Python Tests: If the protocol under test is DCERPC, then PIDL will have already auto-generated Python bindings. Likewise LDAP is easily accessed via LDB.
- Writing cmocka Tests: Idea for unit tests of C functions.
- LDB: Tests for LDB are in
lib/ldb/testsand are run from
- CTDB: Tests for CTDB are written as shell scripts under
ctdb/testsand are run from
