==OCP Checkbox== Checkbox is a test harness used to execute test cases for OCP Ready and OCP Certification testing. It's a command line driven tool written in Python. OCP checkbox is capable of executing test scripts written in a variety of languages (Python, Bash, Perl, C, etc). As of OCP Summit 2015 in San Jose, OCP Checkbox has reached End of Life. It is currently in essentially non-maintained mode though bug fixes will be applied in emergencies. It is being replaced by a new tool based on Plainbox, which will be described below. At some point in the future, OCP Checkbox will be removed entirely from the Open Compute Tools PPA. ===Origins=== Checkbox began as a script called hwtest and was written by people at Canonical. As the initial script grew into a more functional test harness, it was renamed "Checkbox" and has been the testing tool used for Ubuntu certification for many years. The upstream checkbox project is fully open sourced as is the OCP branch of Checkbox. Anyone can contribute code to the tool at any time. Checkbox (and it's next generation) is an extensible test harness that is capable of running tests that are in pretty much any language, interpreted or compiled, and even running external test suites like Phoronix, NGINX, etc. opencompute-certification is a new package that is responsible for providing the test launcher and whitelists and certification specific job files and scripts that are not already a part of the plainbox toolset from Canonical. This next generation test harness is a complete, ground-up replacement for the old Checkbox, designed from the ground up to be modular, extensible, useful, and adaptable. It is under very active development and because of the new process for maintaining packaging for OCP Certification, testers should always have the latest bug fixes made available.
