Punchlines – 7 october 2011

with one comment

Here are the punchlines of our group (students from Centrale Nantes), working on the test framework of Markus.


Status :

Add corrections in the Specifications according to M.Magnin and B.Vialle comments
Add use cases in the Specifications (schema and details of the scopes) with Claire

Next Step :

Finalize the specifications
Sum up and complete the framework state of the art  (in order to post in on the blog and do a report of what was done)


Status :

first version of the specifications completed
work on use cases (diagrams and textual descriptions) for the second version of the specifications finished.

Next Step :

Complete the second version of the specifications
Finalize and summarize the state of art (what works and what has to be implemeted), writing off a report and publishing it on the blog
After the establishment of the state of art, the aim is that each of us will focus on the code of a particular directory or file.


Status :

Try to dig and explore inside the existing code in Ruby.
I’ve followed the tutorial on Ruby indicated on the the wiki.

Next Step :

Understanding better what the concrete objectives in the Markus Project.

Roadblocks :

The current functionalities in the Markus Project are still vague in my mind.


Status :

Looking for what is working in the existing test framework.

Next Step :

My Markus installation is not working properly, cause I’ve some errors that don’t exist in the demo version.

Roadblocks :

Find what is wrong, repair it and look at the existing test framework, to have a precise state of what is already working and what is missing.


Status :

Working on the test’s state of the art with Guillaume.
Trying to figure out why Markus stopped working on my computer.

Next Step :

Understand how the test are working in Markus.
Try some tests and see where are the limits of Markus.

Roadblocks :

It seems Svn is not working anymore on my computer. : “no such file to load — svn/repos”


Status :

Trying to solve Database-system installation problems
Working on defining the specifications

Next Step :

Work and try Markus to understand the state of arts.
Define roles and specify files to work on.

Roadblocks :

Even the re-installation of Ubuntu didn’t solve my “E: Unable to locate package mysql” error.

  1. Keep in mind that on current master saving and editing test framework properties does not work. This is due to the switch to Rails 3 and changed routes. I suggest to work on a bug fix for this first, before you look any more into this. It will give you a bit of practice with Rails and understanding Rails and MarkUs. Hit the mailing list if you run into problems 🙂
