dom/devicestorage/test/test_watch.html always times out (except apparently sometimes on Tinderbox?)


(Core :: DOM: Core & HTML, defect)

Not set

Steps to reproduce:

  make TEST_PATH=dom/devicestorage/test/ -C ../obj-firefox mochitest-plain

Run the tests.

Expected results: tests pass

Actual results: dom/devicestorage/test/test_watch.html times out.
Hmm.  This works if I run the tests from dom/devicestorage/ as opposed to dom/devicestorage/test

Is this test somehow depending on dom/devicestorage/ipc/test_ipc.html ?
Right, if you run from dom/devicestorage/ we will run the device storage tests in ipc.
If I run from dom/devicestorage we'll run them twice: once in ipc and once normally.  The normal runs pass for me in a clean build, but only if they happen after the ipc runs.
Attached patch patch v.1Splinter Review
The FileUpdateDispatcher converts file-watcher-notify observer events to file-watcher-update events.  This is used to be able to broadcast events from one child to another child in B2G.  (f.e., if one child decides to add a file, we want to be able to able to send a onchange notifications to every other child watching that device storage object).  In the non-ipc case, we were not ensuring that this object was created.  The result was that test_watch.html in the non-ipc case would hang until something wrote/deleted a file using device storage.

Please add a comment that indicates that this GetSingleton() might be the only thing that creates the object.  Maybe just put most of comment 4 in your checkin comment?

[Approval Request Comment]
The Gaia e-mail app unit tests would like to be able to use DeviceStorage change notifications in its unit tests to assert on events triggering which run against mozilla-b2g18 builds for realism.  This very minor fix (which made unit tests work!) allows DeviceStorage onchange notifications to work in a non-IPC contexts (Which is how the tests run).

Since the fix is just triggering the creation of a singleton and that already happens in the primary B2G case, this patch should not impact primary use cases.
