Subject:Testing 3rd party engines
View as plain text  
Hi All,

I am just writing a blog on the subject of testing 3rd party engines  
(, and was wondering if this subject has  
come up at all before.

When using mysql-test-run to test a different engine, for example:

$ ./mysql-test-run --mysqld=--default-storage-engine=pbxt

you get a lot of failures which are not actually bugs.

For example wherever SHOW CREATE TABLE is used in a test, the result  
verifies that ENGINE=MyISAM.

In my blog I mentioned this and other things that would make testing  
3rd party engines easier by eliminating unnecessary differences.

If you have a moment, please check it out:

Best regards,
