[Webtest] [dev] source cleanup?
Thu, 23 Sep 2004 10:50:38 +0200
as webtest developer, I've had to fight with a sources' structure that was (and for me always is) difficult to
understand. To facilitate further development, I think that it would be very important to clean it up and to decide on
some ways to keep it easily to understand.
Some propositions to improve current situation:
- generated files should ALL come in a "build" dir
currently the build generates files in numerous directories like:
- remove unused (?) files
- why are some files generated during the build under source control?
- selftests/reports dir
- move junit tests in a separate source folder and remove all AllTests.java
- use jsp for selftests instead of html generated from a servlet
These are only starting points for discussion.
Webtest developers: please criticize or praise these propositions, nothing is worst as silence.
PS: to document the source trees of our developments, we use a mini tool that I've written and that could perhaps be
interesting for webtest. It's a ant task that grab informations walking through the dir and files, write as xml in a
file which gets transformed to html using an xslt. I could make it a SourceForge (or something like) project, if we
decide to use it for webtest.
