Failing unit tests for guacamole-server not triggering build failure



    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: None
    • Fix Version/s: 1.1.0
    • Component/s: guacamole-server
    • Labels:


      The unit test for the "nest" instruction (hopefully soon to be deprecated via GUACAMOLE-661) has been failing. Assuming the failure is legitimate, it hasn't been a problem in practice since the "nest" instruction has been unused for some time, but the fact that this failure has gone unnoticed is troubling. The build results currently show the following for make check:

      PASS: test_libguac
      Testsuite summary for guacamole-server 1.0.0
      # TOTAL: 1
      # PASS:  1
      # SKIP:  0
      # XFAIL: 0
      # FAIL:  0
      # XPASS: 0
      # ERROR: 0

      The test log within tests/test_libguac.log contradicts this, showing that there is actually a test failure (not to mention more than one test total):

      If "nest" is truly not behaving correctly, it should be corrected. If "nest" is correct but the test is wrong, the test should be fixed. Most importantly, the testing portion of the build process should be corrected such that:

      1. The test report actually captures the correct number of tests passing and test failures.
      2. A failing test fails the build.
