Closed Bug 704618 Opened 11 years ago Closed 11 years ago

devicemanagerSUT pushFile does not accept a directory as a destination


(Testing :: General, defect)

Not set


(Not tracked)



(Reporter: gbrown, Assigned: gbrown)



(1 file, 1 obsolete file)

devicemanagerADB allows both:

  dm.pushFile("myfile", "/mnt/sdcard/tests/myfile")


  dm.pushFile("myfile", "/mnt/sdcard/tests")

The calls have the same result: myfile is pushed to /mnt/sdcard/tests/myfile.

devicemanagerSUT only allows:

  dm.pushFile("myfile", "/mnt/sdcard/tests/myfile")

If a directory is specified as the destination, the SUT version of pushFile fails.
This difference between ADB and SUT is one of the reasons why "make xpcshell-tests-remote" fails with SUT (but not with ADB). I don't know of any other tests that use pushFile like this, so another approach to resolving this issue is to change the remote xpcshell tests.

This will fail on windows, you need to force it to use '/' and create the path that way:
destname = destname + '/' + os.path.basename(localname)

Pretty cool if that's all we have to do.  Did you test this?

It's so simple, and for some reason I had this idea this would be hard.
Thanks, flag Joel for followup review, I'm going to be out tomorrow.
The patch appears to cause trouble for mochitest-remote -- I'll look into it.
I found I had to use dirExists instead of isDir (isDir throws an exception when the path does not exist).

I also corrected the issue identified by ctalbert -- thanks!

mochitest-remote passes now.

The change to pushDir is not strictly necessary for this bug, but corrects a problem I noted while debugging: Some paths passed to pushFile had double path-separators: /mnt/sdcard/tests/mochitest//some.file

r=me.  please run through try server for android-xul tests which use sut agent.
