twisted.web.http.HTTPFactory is incompletely tested

Reported by: Jean-Paul Calderone Owned by: Kai Zhang
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: web Keywords:
Cc: jknight, Kai Zhang Branch:


A fair portion of the code in this class is not tested by anything in twisted.web.test, and even more of it is not tested directly by twisted.web.test.test_http. It should be (found while porting to Python 3).

I am still new to Twisted. There must be many mistakes in this patch. Please tell me and I will try my best to correct them.

  1. FakeFile: This should be moved somewhere common. (see [ticket:6064#comment:7
  2. There are a number of things that aren't directly coverred: .log, and the code for updating the log time for a start. (There may be some code that executes them, but nothing that tests their behavior).
    • For testing the time update, you probably want to look at twisted.internet.task.Clock, and you'll need to change the code to use a specified clock, rather than the global reactor.
    • You should test overriding _openLogFile, since that is explicitly documented as supported. (I'd suggest, other than for a test of _openLogFile itself, overriding it, instead of patching open)
  3. Use twisted.trial.unittest.TestCase.patch.
  4. The docstring of test_buildProtocol isn't clear about what it expects, in terms of timeOut.

Please resubmit for review after addressing the above points.

I wonder how FakeFile is superior to StringIO.StringIO? I can see one way that StringIO.StringIO is better - it raises ValueError from write if it is closed, like an actual file object.
