Request for (deeper) test: Net::LDAP::Expressby bronto (Priest)
|on Jan 10, 2005 at 09:57 UTC||Need Help??|
bronto has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
One month ago, I finally published a small amount of changes that were lying around in my hard disk since months, added a patch provided by a user (thanks Gordon!) and deeply revised the test suite.
To cut a long story short, the test suite of the module can simply check if its prerequisite modules are there, or do deeper checks, trying to create and modify entries in the directory server.
Unfortunately, from the reports I had when I uploaded v0.10 (that had a broken test suite) it seems that CPAN testers are doing just the short tests, so I don't know if the deeper tests work fine in environments different from OpenLDAP.
If anybody of you would be so kind to do the deeper tests on the same and, if possible, different environment (like, e.g.: Active Directory, Novell...) and post some report, I would greatly apreciate it.
For those of you that are willing to test, the relevant part of the README file follows.
Thanks in advance
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.
