mysql_client_test_embedded - test client API for embedded server
mysql_client_test [options] [test_name] ...
mysql_client_test_embedded [options] [test_name] ...
The mysql_client_test program is used for testing aspects of the MySQL
client API that cannot be tested using mysqltest and its test language.
mysql_client_test_embedded is similar but used for testing the embedded
server. Both programs are run as part of the test suite.
The source code for the programs can be found in in
tests/mysql_client_test.c in a source distribution. The program serves
as a good source of examples illustrating how to use various features
of the client API.
mysql_client_test is used in a test by the same name in the main tests
suite of mysql-test-run.pl but may also be run directly. Unlike the
other programs listed here, it does not read an external description of
what tests to run. Instead, all tests are coded into the program, which
is written to cover all aspects of the C language API.
mysql_client_test supports the following options:
o --help, -?
Display a help message and exit.
o --basedir=dir_name, -b dir_name
The base directory for the tests.
o --count=count, -t count
The number of times to execute the tests.
o --database=db_name, -D db_name
The database to use.
o --debug[=debug_options], -#[debug_options]
Write a debugging log if MySQL is built with debugging support. The
default debug_options value is
o --getopt-ll-test=option, -g option
Option to use for testing bugs in the getopt library.
o --host=host_name, -h host_name
The TCP/IP port number to use for the connection.
o --server-arg=arg, -A arg
Argument to send to the embedded server.
o --show-tests, -T
Show all test names.
o --silent, -s
Be more silent.
o --socket=path, -S path
The socket file to use when connecting to localhost (which is the
o --testcase, -c
The option is used when called from mysql-test-run.pl, so that
mysql_client_test may optionally behave in a different way than if
called manually, for example by skipping some tests. Currently,
there is no difference in behavior but the option is included to
make this possible.
o --user=user_name, -u user_name
The MySQL user name to use when connecting to the server.
o -v dir_name, --vardir=dir_name
The data directory for tests. The default is mysql-test/var.
