The following is a survey about current status of integration testing testbed provision/ tools/procedures/practises for middleware stacks involved in EMI project.

From EMI DOW above, SA2.6 task will be in charge of providing testbeds for integration testing in EMI. After preliminary discussion concerning testbeds, this should imply providing testbeds for:

  1. Integration testing within a minor release (no backward compatibility broken), so that a RC service can be tested VS other services in production. This imply a distributed testbed of production services available for each middleware stack. This could also imply cases of RC vs other RC or RC vs (RC + production).
  2. Integration testing for a major release (you may have new features or backward compatibility broken for many services). This imply a testbed of ?VERSION? services available for each middleware stack, so basically this means providing HW for PT to install many RC services and see what happens.
  3. Integration testing among middlewares (glite/ARC/Unicore) but this is not coming shortly, i guess.
large-scale tests, this will involve volunteers partners providing resources for the test.
The certification of a service in insulation before integration is in charge of PT. Actually it is still to be clarified where does integration testing starts for each PT. Testbeds available mean:
  1. Available HW resources: server with OS installed (one among agreed platforms), and root access to the server for testers, who are in charge of service installation / configuration
  2. For large-scale tests testbed means production environment simulation (services interaction, distributed pool of users, production like usage of services)
  3. Communication channels / procedures to request a testbed and to involve people in providing HW resource

Exact definition of duties and modalities for providing such a testbed will be also discussed with EMI-SA1/JRA1 and will be the object of a draft model for matching testbed requirements outlined above.

Find attached a comparative summary of survey results.
