Descartes and DSpot Demo Applied to OW2 Joram

Jun 26 2019

JoramDemo

OW2 Joram is a JMS-compatible message-oriented middleware.
Thanks to a new Gitlab issue generator extension for Descartes, the Joram team found and solved a critical issue in unit tests.

The OW2 Joram project, as a STAMP use case, reveals:

  • The detection of a critical issue in Joram unit tests, with Descartes (code is removed but the test suite is green - everything "normal"!).
  • The issue is automatically inserted in the Joram Gitlab.
  • Dspot, focused on the issue, generates a test that fixes it.

These tools were really used to detect and fix an issue in Joram: at least, the Descartes + Gitlab issue generation part (the issue was fixed by the Joram team, but without DSpot).
