This has been discussed before but after trying to debug the last failure on Jenkins where I saw the time go back and forth (if you don't care about your own sanity do checkout https://builds.apache.org/job/HBase-TRUNK/3726/testReport/junit/org.apache.hadoop.hbase.replication/TestReplicationWithCompression/testDeleteTypes/) I think it is time to break out TestReplication.
The difficulty is that the setup for the 2 clusters is a lot of code I don't want to duplicate. I'm thinking that we can keep setUpBeforeClass there and have the other classes extend TestReplication (which should also change name). I'm thinking of the following new classes:
- TestReplicationSmallTests, contains the easy methods that don't mess around too much.
- TestReplicationQueueFailover, contains one test of the same name
- TestReplicationDisableInactivePeer, contains one test of the same name
- Rename TestReplicationWithCompression TestReplicationQueueFailoverWithCompression and make it extends TestReplicationQueueFailover.
