Proposed patch. v1

* Eliminate do_test_pending/do_test_finished, switching entirely to run_next_test.
* Each test is now a named function with descriptive log output; no more "test 5".
* Refactor out a bunch of helpers, allowing us to define short and sweet tests like

  add_test(function test_storing_a_normal_32x32_icon() {
    _("Test storing a normal 32x32 icon.");
  
    // 32x32 png, 344 bytes.
    let iconName   = "favicon-normal32.png";
    let inMimeType = "image/png";
    do_check_file_contents(iconName, inMimeType, 344);
    run_next_test();
  });

* Use modern JS features (e.g., let).
* Kill trailing whitespace.
* Add some comments and generally tidy up.

Same number of checks run. \o/

Oh, forgot to mention: it might be easier to push this patch and just read the file. The diff is kinda useless; it's a rewrite.

you named all the other functions do_check_something, this one differs. Btw, for just 5 uses I'd suggest to drop this util and just use do_check_true(compareArrays(a, b)) in place, so there is no need to see what the helper checks, and is short enough

I don't see why this is part of getting the favicon service.. btw we shouldn't need to get the service, we can just use PlacesUtils.favicons all over the test.

I think you may easily modify readFileData to detect if it gets passed in a file or a channel and support both

Ah yes. Every module does these things differently :D

Heh, I went in the opposite direction for the new creation tests I transplanted! Figured uri() was the idiom for this module. Will change back.

Sure. I tend to use /** for the comments that are actually vaguely correct docstrings, so perhaps I'll just do that :)

I was following the pattern for checks throughout xpcshell-tests, which is do_check_eq, do_check_true, etc.

I'm happy to break that convention if you want, but only with explicit say-so!

> > +function checkArrays(a, b) {

I didn't name that function.

This was mostly reorganization and refactoring; I deliberately didn't rename existing helpers.

I'm happy to stomp on more code if you're fine with it, and make the whole thing follow more of a Services style guide :D

wfm.

This is old code, too.

> these comments are useless unless they say something more

It does (albeit at the end of a 100-character line with the full path):

TEST-INFO | /Users/rnewman/moz/hg/services-central/obj-ff-dbg/_tests/xpcshell/toolkit/components/places/tests/unit/test_favicons.js | Starting test_getFaviconData_on_the_default_favicon
Test getFaviconData on the default favicon.

In this case I mechanically generated the function names from the old descriptions, so they happen to be identical.

Works for me.

Good style. do_throw always causes the test to fail, and logs. In this case it's the logging of an informative message that's nice.

> does savedIcon1URI differ from icon1URI here? if not you may just compare
> for equality and drop the additional var

I didn't change this test code, beyond adjusting scopes to separate into different functions. I didn't analyze whether the old tests made sense, so I didn't change them :)

> function bracing on newline in all the test.

I disagree. Whitespace is for clarity, and is a much better choice for that than inconsistent coding style.

> nit: double newline somewhere, single somewhere else

Humph. Thought I'd caught all of those.

Well, this is turning into much more than a cleanup, isn't it? :D

there was a plan to move it to xpchell head.js.. not sure where it died.

ideally I would like to get rid of uri() helper. useless hiding.

My fear was to override a method from the harness unadvertitely, but actually wouldn't matter that much... fine if you want to keep do_check_ style.

old code sucks, kill it

Proposed patch. v2

Thanks for the thorough comments, mak.

Changes in this patch:
* In head_common, implemented readInputStreamData, reimplemented readFileData
  in terms of it. Use readInputStreamData directly in test; cleaner IMO than
  making readFileData polymorphic.
  All 175 xpcshell-tests pass with this change to readFileData.
* Add PD header.
* No use of _ at all. Only one use of do_log_info.
* Use FileUtils. (No import needed.)
* Lifted isWindows to top-level let.
* Eliminated checkArrays and dumpToFile.
* Eliminate top-level foosvc vars.
* Use NetUtil.newURI() everywhere instead of uri().
* Refactoring of setAndGetFaviconDataFromName.
* Rename do_check* to check*, with name improvements.
* Removed and improved comments, including JavaDoc.
* Reworked the big `let`; instead we use `icons` and `pages` at the top level,
  with explanation. All the other cross-test state sharing (e.g.,
  savedIcon1URI) has been replaced by appropriate checks and use of `icons` and
  `pages`. Much neater.

I believe this'll be a rubber-stamp, so r? please!

s-c because that's where I'll be landing favicons sync, and I can keep an eye on the process more easily than I can on the places branch.
