Created attachment 478613 [details] [diff] [review] v1 allow developers to specify: |make mochitest-1| |make mochitest-2| etc. to mimic the buildbot behavior rather than needing to run the whole suite or dig up the buildbot runtests.py syntax when they need to reproduce an issue found by try.

Comment on attachment 478613 [details] [diff] [review] v1 I think we should make the total number of chunks a variable that can be overriden (TOTAL_CHUNKS ?= 5) so that in the future it'll be trivial to move from 5 chunks to 6 on buildbot.

Comment on attachment 478613 [details] [diff] [review] v1 Actually, r-. This will break mochitest-chrome, etc.

Callek points out on IRC that I'm wrong about that.
Created attachment 478615 [details] [diff] [review] v2 address an IRC nit
Yea, this won't break mochitest-chrome as explicit targets override any wildcard ones. So we are safe there.
Created attachment 478617 [details] [diff] [review] v2.1 and after doing qref on the right patch

Created attachment 478618 [details] [diff] [review] comm-central patch and let comm-central use the magic from root @objdir@
Created attachment 478619 [details] [diff] [review] comm-central patch v1.1 better patch (and it doesn't error out)
Comment on attachment 478619 [details] [diff] [review] comm-central patch v1.1 I wonder a bit why we can't have those targets in one list, but the main thing is that it works. :)

(In reply to comment #9) > Comment on attachment 478619 [details] [diff] [review] > comm-central patch v1.1 > http://hg.mozilla.org/comm-central/rev/e68e000957ed I pushed this before the m-c patch, it won't break anything and doing the mochitest-1 .. 5 attempt prior to m-c patch landing will now just error in the m-c makefile rather than the c-c one. That said, the reason this needs a new target-line is that we can't mix explicit and implicit rules. (using % makes this an implicit rule)
The only downside here is that this will let you run "make mochitest-anything" and it will use that rule. You could write this as a static pattern rule, instead, which would only match explicitly what you tell it to, like: mochitest-1 mochitest-2 mochitest-3 mochitest-4 mochitest-5: mochitest-%: echo "mochitest: $* / 5" then only mochitest-1 to mochitest-5 would be accepted.

Created attachment 478993 [details] [diff] [review] v3 Address teds nits. Since ted wanted me to hard-code the acceptable "this chunk" part, I took out the total-chunks var. (no sense in allowing someone to set 6 chunks, but only go up to 5). Requesting a formal review. [the concept/patch still has r=khuey]

Comment on attachment 478993 [details] [diff] [review] v3 You don't need the echo, that was just me being lazy and not wanting to copy the full command there.

Added a section to the documentation here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Mochitest#Running_specific_tests_in_Firefox_4_or_later Would appreciate a quick review; it's only a couple of short paragraphs.
LGTM. Thanks Sheppy!
Keywords: dev-doc-needed → dev-doc-complete
I s/Firefox 4/Gecko 2/'d since this is core functionality.
sheppy, unrelated but your template stuff seems to have broke the anchor link...
That's only because the name changed; the link is now: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Mochitest#Running_specific_tests_in_Gecko_2.0_or_later
