P4DTI issue job002088

TitleP4DTI automated testing with Unicode data is poor
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionThe P4DTI now replicates Unicode data satisfactorily, but the automated testing of this feature is inadequate: only testing operation with and without Unicode-mode Perforce servers.
Analysis The automated test suite should have a "unicode" switch for several of its tests. When the switch is on, comments added to Bugzilla bugs or Perforce jobs during the test should include non-ASCII Unicode characters from several differnt code charts (although note that non-BMP characters are not yet supported by MySQL). The test suite should automatically run tests with the switch off and with it on.
