Using elasticsearch test classes for plugin development

Hi all,

The elasticsearch core tests have a bunch of very nice supporting classes, things like AbstractNodesTest, that make it easy to test stuff end-to-end via the Java client API. Is there anyway of exposing these for plugin development? Being test classes, they're not included in the default jar.

Thanks,

Alan Woodward

Hi Alan,

I'm afraid the only method applicable now is copy&paste. But it's a good
idea if a test framework jar was provided, with annotations and the like.

Best regards,

Jörg

Hi Alan,

I developped a small testing framework for elasticsearch, with annotations
and utility classes: https://github.com/tlrx/elasticsearch-test

It is used on several projects and works well. You can see an example class
using the EsSetpup object here;
https://github.com/tlrx/elasticsearch-test/blob/master/src/test/java/com/github/tlrx/elasticsearch/test/BasicTest.java

I'd love to see something similar provided by elasticsearch team.
