I am a 4th-year CS undergrad and have been keen to contribute to Rails/Jruby for a while.
Recently, I came across the topic ‘Getting Rails test suite to run on Jruby’ on the rubyonrails-soc mailing list. (Ref: https://github.com/rails/rails/issues/11700)
I am ready with the appropriate setup for the same. Please help me get started with it.
Nothing yet. Please tell me how to get started
I have written a blog post:
To summarize, process is:
Run the test suite to find tests that fail on JRuby
Try to isolate the error source. if its a rails issue, please submit a PR,. the proposed fix doesn’t have to be perfect solution, submitting WIP PR & asking for feedback should be okay. if its a issue in JRuby, then submit a PR there if you know java & can fix it all by yourself. Else, just open an issue on github describing what the problem is & provide them a small isolated code snippet which reproduces the problem.
Encoding issues are hardest to fix on JRuby.
if you get stuck which an issue that providing too difficult to solve/debug. You can switch to another issue, Try starting with easier ones to get your feet wet.
I am able to see the relevant failing tests. Am looking for a test to work on atm.
Suggest me a bug if you can in the meanwhile though.
