It would be nice if Marionette used moztest to keep track of test results.  Currently, we use a subclass of unittest._TextTestResult (; the disadvantage of this is that it's hard to add custom test properties (like a screenshot).

I think it would be useful to make MarionetteTestResult extend moztest's TestResultCollection (as well as unittest._TextTestResult) and make errors[], failures[], and tests_passed[] properties that operate on the collection's members.

In order to support the use case of being able to add custom test properties, we'd also need to modify moztest to do this; currently TestResultCollection is hardcoded to use TestResult directly; there's no provision for use of a subclass that could define additional instance variables.

I'll try to focus on it this week :)

First submission, extend TestResultCollection in MarionetteTestResult, update Moztest to be able to use custom subclass of test result

Review of attachment 777195 [details] [diff] [review]:

Good first iteration, and kudos for the test case!

Please add moztest to Marionette's

For mozbase patches, we handle them a little differently than a typical gecko patch, so can you break the mozbase parts into a separate patch?  Thanks!

Instead of maintaining separate lists of skipped, expectedFailures, etc, we can now make these properties which would do something like:

def skipped(self):
  return this.filter(lambda t: t.result == t.SKIPPED)

See the tests_with_result method of TestResultCollection.  Things which do e.g., len(skipped) could do count(skipped) (from moztest.output.base) instead.  Or, we could have the skipped property return an actual list instead of a generator.

We don't want to append any strings to the result list; it should only contain instances of TestResult.  All these strings are just for dumping to the output, so we can just leave the original implementation intact.

I think this variable should be named resultClass, for clarity.  Then, in __init__, we can just do:

if resultClass is not None:
    self.resultClass = resultClass

Yep, oki thx for the review. I'll resubmit a new one soon :)
After, many many days :) this is the second submission.

This is Moztest part.
I add two function. One property in TestResult, named "test_name", to get a complete name of a test result. Second, to add test result in the collection.

I think, add_result function could be refactor and being used by add_unittest_result function

Looks good.  I agree we should change add_test_result to use add_result; can you make this change?  Then, I think it will be good to land.

Review of attachment 785869 [details] [diff] [review]:

This is looking much better.  In order to be complete, I think we'll need to add overrides for addError and addFailure which populate the TestResultCollection appropriately.

Also, I think we can dispense with the property setters, since they are only used in addSuccess/addUnexpectedFailure/addFoo, and just call add_result from within those methods.

Since we're going to track the successful tests using TestResultCollection, we should omit the call to super() here (even though the base method is a no-op, at least in python 2.7.3).

I've added errors and failures properties to the collection. I have made some little changes in printErrorList function. 

For unit testing this part i use the very usefull "" test, written  by Dave Hunt ( 

I didn't add it to the patch .. but i can add it as an attachment just for test.

I will landed, the next patch for moztest asap.

Shouldn't we use get_class here, instead of test.__class__, to preserve the original behavior?

Does str(test).split()[0] (from the original) evaluate to the same as test._testMethodName?
Yes, it's a mistake from my part. I add get_class especially for preserving the original behavior.

I'll update this soon.

For str(test).split()[0] VS test._testMethodName, this evaluate the same. But I suppose it's better to use the original (str(test).split()[0]) because _testMethodName should be a private function ?
add get_class into add_result function
Change test_name property.

Attachment #786914 - Flags: review?(jgriffin) → review-
Ok, but just a little thing : if we remove the setter, unittest.TestResult will initialize skipped list and other lists in the __init__ part :

        self.failures = []
        self.errors = []
        self.testsRun = 0
        self.skipped = []
        self.expectedFailures = []
        self.unexpectedSuccesses = []

So, we can remove the call of unittest.TestResult.__init__ and set specific attributes in marionette's __init__ function (see new attachment for more details)
