TM 2.0 M6 Testing

Nav: DSDP/TM | DSDP/TM/Testing | TM 2.0 Testing | TM 2.0 M6 Testing | TM 2.0 Test Instructions | TM 2.0 Known Issues and Workarounds | TM Manual Test Plan

This is the master coordination page for TM 2.0 M6 Testing, to be done with Target Management 2.0 M6, 3-Apr-2007. Please sign up here for testing particular features of TM 2.0 M6, or a particular host / target combination. It is important for all of us to coordinate our efforts

  • In order to get bugs submitted early, such that we can fix them for the release
  • In order to avoid duplication of testing work
  • In order to get a good test coverage and exposure of TM / RSE.

Organization and Signup

The main focus in this round of testing is to find obvious showstoppers, and to verify the integration into the Europa Coordinated Update Site (Note: we need to use the Staging site for testing, see below).

Most of you took part in an earlier round of testing already, so you'll not need to read all of the TM 2.0 Test Instructions. Here is some important information for this round of testing:

  • Please use a customized bug entry template again. If you already have one from an earlier round of testing, change "2.0M5 Testing" into "2.0M6 Testing" and save it as your new bookmark for this round of testing. Otherwise, use this link to show, modify and save a sample bug entry template.
  • If possible, please use the JDK versions as signed up in the table below. These are chosen to comply with our Reference Platforms and JDK versions. Edit the table below if you need to use a different JDK version.
  • Downloads to test are at I20070406-0930
    • Official Test Platform is Eclipse 3.3M6 (with use CDT 4.0.0M6 for remotecdt and EMF 2.3.0M6 for discovery if you want to test those).
    • Eclipse 3.2 has problems displaying Property Pages for subsystems so we do not support it.
    • Some scripts that make the job of downloading RSE easier have been published on the mailing list.
  • Updates Site to test is at

    • Persistence [11][api] refactoring and adding new tracking api for persistence;
    • EFS [12] New files could not be created in EFS due to thread blocking

  • You'll have two tasks for testing this time:
    • 1. Sanity check - please use RSE in a "normal" way as you'd usually use it. RSE 1.0 Test Instructions have a sample sanity check. Please test on your assigned host/target combination. Report any bad behavior. We should try to get most of RSE covered since refactorings might have broken things.
    • 2. Bug verification - See the P1, P2, Critical and Major bugs modified query for verification candidates. I'm not splitting up the bugs to be verified, please take from the query mentioned what you think you can verify; naturally, those reported by yourself are the prime candidates. Change the status soon and refresh the query often to ensure we don't do duplicate work. When you verified a bug OK, set it to VERIFIED. Bugzilla allows you to click on the "next bug" link so you'll be able to move through the list quite quickly.

Thanks to everybody who signs up and thus helps making RSE better!
