New Buildsystem and CI/CD

A GSoC project by Avinal Kumar

Coding Week 8 Meeting

Week 8 Progress


  • How is the testing implemented in FOSSology?
    • Not all agents have testing implemented.
    • There are two types of tests Unit and Functional.
    • At first, the test executable calls multiple PHP scripts to create a test environment. And then tests are executed.
    • Files related to testing and common for all the agents are in src/testing
    • Other tests depends on phpunit. This PHPUnit is generated inside vendor.
  • As of now, the testing configurations are hardcoded, what should I do, because it seems the testing configuration will require changes to a lot of files?
    • Decide a deadline for the testing configuration and if until that point there is not very productive implementation then move to the next task that is implementing CI.
  • As of now building, installation, and packaging via CMake is working and in a stable state. To create an initial Pull Request. This would also be useful in case of the final evaluation and further testing will be based on this PR itself.
  • Fix any bugs or if there is the scope of improvement in Building, Installation and Packaging do that.

Conclusion and Further Plans

  • Prepare for an initial PR.
  • Fix known bugs and apply Improvements.
  • Work on testing configurations.
