Subject: Shutdown methods should always run
Date: Fri, 18 Nov 2011 14:44:52 -0500 (EST)
To: bug-Test-Class [...]
From: David Dierauer <ddierauer [...]>
I believe that Test::Class's current behavior with regard to the interaction between failed startup methods and shutdown methods is undesirable. I believe that shutdown methods should always run, even if there's a failure in a startup method. I frequently have tests where I set up several things in a startup method, beginning with creating a test account (which is a number of related rows in a database). My shutdown methods for such test classes then always include deleting all the rows related to that account from the database. If the first thing I do in a startup method is create that account, but the second thing in the method tries to do something with it which fails unexpectedly (perhaps throwing an exception in the startup method), I still want my shutdown method to run and remove the DB rows. I have attached a patch against 0.36 to implement this behavior (which I feel is more correct). -- David Dierauer Senior Software Quality Analyst and Lead Mentor Liquid Web, Inc.
