Project: Import sqlite test suite

Import sqlite test suite

Project Description

Mozilla uses an embedded version of SQLite extensively to store data such as bookmarks, history, etc. To insure that it runs properly within Mozilla, it would be good to add the entire sqlite test suite to Mozilla's tests, so that testing the browser also means testing sqlite. The sqlite test suite is written in TCL and needs to be ported to JavaScript. Some work has already been done, but more is required to get full test coverage.

    • Run & understand the test program already built in the tests folder
    • SQLite test suite here
    • TCL research here
  • Programming
    • Add new functions that when the firefox runs on test mode, it pops up a new window, and then shows only SQLite's communication parts and result.
      • process
        • Add a new option into .mozconfig
          ac_add_options -enable-SQLitePopUp
