Common tests for all Ethereum implementations
Common tests for all clients to test against. Test execution tool: https://github.com/ethereum/retesteth
/BasicTests /BlockchainTests /GeneralStateTests /TransactionTests /RLPTest /src
See descriptions of the different test formats in the official documentation at http://ethereum-tests.readthedocs.io/.
The format of BlockchainTests recently changed with the introduction of a new field
Ethash), see related JSON Schema change or BlockchainTest format docs for reference.
This means that you can skip PoW validation for
NoProoftests but also has the consequence that it is not possible to rely on/check
PoWrelated block parameters for these tests any more.
The following clients make use of the tests from this library. You can use these implementations for inspiration on how to integrate. If your client is missing, please submit a PR (requirement: at least some minimal test documentation)!
We do versioned tag releases for tests and you should aim to run your client libraries against the latest repository snapshot tagged.
Generally the develop branch in
ethereum/testsis always meant to be stable and you should be able to run your test against.
If you want to follow up with current tasks and what is currently in the works, have a look at the issues
Currently the geth evm
t8ntoolclient is the reference client for generating tests. Besu client also has support for generating the tests using rpc test protocol. See at https://github.com/ethereum/retesteth/wiki
Testing results are available at http://retesteth.ethdevops.io/
There is a web tool for vmtracing the tests using supported clients and retesteth: http://retesteth.ethdevops.io/web/
All blockchain tests are being run by hive tool: https://hivetests.ethdevops.io/
Do not change test files in folders: * StateTests * BlockchainTests * TransactionTests * VMTests
It is being created by the testFillers which could be found at src folder. The filler specification and wiki are in development so please ask on gitter channel for more details.
If you want to modify a test filler or add a new test please contact @wdimitry at telegram Use the following guide: https://github.com/ethereum/retesteth/wiki/Creating-a-State-Test-with-retesteth
