Samsung Continues Working On "Waycheck" For Wayland Testing
Written by Michael Larabel in Wayland on 20 June 2015 at 08:50 PM EDT. 7 Comments
Developers at Samsung's open-source group have been working on a simple unit/integration test framework and test program. This new tool is dubbed "Waycheck" and will hopefully lead to promptly catching functional regressions/bugs.

Jon Cruz at Samsung today posted version five of these patches going into Weston for providing unit testing. This work amounts to over eight thousand lines of new code.

This functional test framework based in C is inspired by Google Test, Boost Test, JUnit, TestNG, and other functional testing frameworks.

Wayland stakeholders wishing to learn more about this tentative work for bettering Wayland's testing situation can find all of the relevant details via this patch series.
