Testing for Developers
======================
The ZODB checkouts are `buildouts <http://www.python.org/pypi/zc.buildout>`_.
When working from a ZODB checkout, first run the bootstrap.py script
to initialize the buildout:
% python bootstrap.py
and then use the buildout script to build ZODB and gather the dependencies:
% bin/buildout
This creates a test script:
% bin/test -v
This command will run all the tests, printing a single dot for each
test. When it finishes, it will print a test summary. The exact
number of tests can vary depending on platform and available
third-party libraries.::
Ran 1182 tests in 241.269s
OK
The test script has many more options. Use the ``-h`` or ``--help``
options to see a file list of options. The default test suite omits
several tests that depend on third-party software or that take a long
time to run. To run all the available tests use the ``--all`` option.
Running all the tests takes much longer.::

Compatibility
=============
ZODB 4.3 requires Python 2.7 or Python >= 3.3.
Travis: |buildstatus|_
winbot: |winbotstatus|_
Prerequisites
=============
You must have Python installed. If you're using a system Python
install, make sure development support is installed too.
You also need the transaction, BTrees, persistent, six, zc.lockfile, ZConfig,
zodbpickle, zope.interface packages, and optionally manuel and zope.testing.
If you don't have them and you can connect to the Python Package Index,
then these will be installed for you if you don't have them.
Installation
============
ZODB is released as a distutils package. The easiest ways to build
and install it are to use `easy_install
<http://peak.telecommunity.com/DevCenter/EasyInstall>`_, or
`zc.buildout <http://www.python.org/pypi/zc.buildout>`_.
To install by hand, first install the dependencies listed in `Prerequisites`_.
These can be found in the `Python Package Index <http://www.python.org/pypi>`_.
To run the tests, use the test setup command::
python setup.py test
It will download dependencies if needed. If this happens, ou may get
an import error when the test command gets to looking for tests. Try
running the test command a second time and you should see the tests
run.
::
python setup.py test
To install, use the install command::
python setup.py install

Maintenance scripts
-------------------
Several scripts are provided with the ZODB and can help for analyzing,
debugging, checking for consistency, summarizing content, reporting space used
by objects, doing backups, artificial load testing, etc.
Look at the ZODB/script directory for more informations.
