Equinox p2 tests

Setup

  • To run through all these tests you will need test repositories. There are two ways have repositories:
    • Use the repository available at http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/testUpdates/. The SDK builds pre-dating december 10th are based on last week I build) and the build dated from the 11th at 09h54.
    • Generate repos for two versions of the eclipse SDK (preferably 3.4 M3 and 3.4 M4 candidate). At generation time make sure to use different versions for the generated SDK's (Use the -rootVersion argument in the launch config to control this).

Throughout the scenarios, SDK-v1 will refer to the oldest version of the two SDKs and SDK-v2 to the newest one.

Also note that contrarily to what we mentioned in the last p2 call, we don't have server zip available yet. We will build those Tuesday morning EDT.

Core Tests (using Admin UI)

Basic install, run and update from Admin UI

  • Using the Admin UI:
    • create a new profile
    • install the SDK-v1
  • Run the provisioned install
  • Using the Admin UI:
    • look for updates, install eclipse SDK-v2
  • Run the provisioned install and verify that the SDK-v2 plugins are here
  • Also check that the profile is properly updated in the Admin UI

Variation, try with/without exiting the Admin UI.

Basic install, run and update using remote repository

  • Using the Admin UI:
    • create a new profile
    • connect to the test repository
    • install the SDK-v1
  • Run the provisioned install
  • Using the Admin UI:
    • look for updates, install eclipse SDK-v2
  • Run the provisioned install and verify that the SDK-v2 plugins are here
  • Also check that the profile is properly updated in the Admin UI

Basic install/update from Admin UI

  • Using the Admin UI:
    • Create a new profile
    • Install the SDK-v1
  • Do *not* start the provisioned install
  • Using the Admin UI:
    • look for updates, install eclipse SDK-v2
  • Run and verify that the plugins have been changed
  • Also check that the profile is properly updated in the Admin UI

Variation, try with/without exiting the Admin UI.

Bundle pool

  • Using the Admin UI:
    • Create a new profile
    • Install the SDK. During the installation notice the dialog saying that around 150M (the size of the SDK) should be "installed" (caveat, this may already be giving you the same result than in the second step if you are installing an already installed SDK.)
  • Create a second profile
  • Install the SDK in it
    • During the installation notice the dialog saying that only around 50K should be "installed".
    • Notice that the download phase goes much faster.
  • Uninstall the two SDK previously installed
  • Navigate to the folder of the bundle pool and notice that all the jars and folders are now gone. the GC has run.

Bundle pool in the eclipse install

  • Using the Admin UI:
    • Create a new profile: in the dialog set the install folder and the bundle pool to the same location. It will be the root of your eclipse install.
  • Install the SDK
  • Verify that the plugins folder is located at a subfolder of the install location
  • Verify that the path in the bundles.txt are relative.
  • Verify that the path in the osgi.bundles property of the config.ini are relative


Download Resilience

  • From the Admin UI
    • Create a profile
    • Install an SDK and while the download proceeds find an inventive way (a.k.a not using cancel) to abort the download (e.g. unplug the network cable, kill the process, etc.).
    • Restart the installation and see if it completes normally

Dropins Reconciler

  • From the Admin UI
    • Create a profile and install the SDK and User UI
  • For M4 the following manual steps are required.
    • Go to your install folder and edit your eclipse.ini
      • add "-console" at the top.
      • add "-Dorg.eclipse.equinox.p2.reconciler.dropins.directory=C:\ontheside\dropins" to the VM arguments at the bottom
      • Note: The dropin folder must not be inside the profile because of how frameworkadmin adjusts paths to make them relative and a bug with install dir.
      • If you want to collocate your dropins folder you will have to set "-Dosgi.install.area=file:/c:/yourprofile"
    • save and start eclipse
    • at the console "start" the org.eclipse.equiniox.p2.reconciler.dropins bundle
    • exit eclipse
  • Testing
    • put a bundle in your dropins folder
    • start eclipse and verify that the bundle was installed
    • exit eclipse
    • remove the bundle from your dropins folder
    • start eclipse and verify that the bundle was uninstalled

End User UI Tests

These steps should be followed to set up an SDK with end user UI. The provisioned SDK will then be used for all of the End User UI tests.

Install from End User UI

  • Start the provisioned SDK
  • Help>Software Updates (Incubation)...
    • Find the releng tools in the available features page
    • Install the releng tools
  • Accept to restart.
  • Notice the presence of the releng tools (should be listed in the installed features page)
  • Start up the Admin UI
  • Notice the presence of the releng tools in the profile

Uninstall the releng tools from End User UI

  • Start the provisioned SDK
  • Help>Software Updates (Incubation)...
    • Go to Installed features page
    • Select the releng tools
    • Uninstall
  • Accept the restart
  • Come back up and notice the absence of the releng tools (no longer listed in installed features page)

Variation - verify the absence of the releng tools in the profile using the admin UI

Reverting from the End User UI

  • Start the provisioned SDK
  • Help>Software Updates (Incubation)...
    • Go to available features page and find the releng tools
    • Select and install the releng tools
    • Verify that the "Installed Features" list shows the releng tools
    • Choose "Revert Configuration..." and select a timestamped configuration that does not have the releng tools, Finish
    • Verify that the "Installed Features" list no longer shows the releng tools, but still shows the SDK and end user UI

Manual updates

  • Start the provisioned SDK
  • Help>Software Updates (Incubation)...
    • On the installed features page, push the "Check for Updates" button
    • You should get a dialog showing the newer version of the SDK
    • Accept the update, restart
    • Verify that the end user UI now shows the new version in the installed features list

Automatic updates

  • Start the provisioned SDK
  • Go to the Update/Install preferences and enable auto update on startup
  • Ensure you are connected to a repo that has a newer version of the SDK, userUI, or releng tools
  • Exit the provisioned SDK and restart
  • Look for popup notifying you of updates
  • Click on popup to launch the update wizard
  • Update and verify as usual
