Writing new shims for a test

A detailed description of this process is contained in the docs directory. The very short version of this is as follows:

  1. Write a pair of client programs using the client API under test. The first is a sender which reads the following from the command-line:

    <broker address> <amqp type> <JSON string: test values> ...

    and is responsible for sending messages containing the test values each in a single message in the appropriate AMQP type format.

    The second client program is a receiver, and must read the following from the command-line

    <broker address> <amqp type> <JSON string: num messages>

    and is responsible for receiving messages from the broker and printing the bodies of the received messages appropriately decoded for type . The printed output will be a JSON string containing the identical structure to that sent to the send shim, but containing the received values.

  2. Add a subclass for this client in src/py/qpid-interop-test/types/simple_type_test.py derived from class Shim and which overrides NAME, ENV (as needed), SHIM_LOC, SEND and RECEIVE. SEND and RECEIVE must point to the two clients written in step 1 above.

  3. Add an instance of your new shim class to SHIM_MAP keyed against its name.

That's it!
