Re: [libvirt] [libvirt-users] Help needed in simulating libvirt

Hi Eric,

Thanks for your response.
I like to know how test driver works. 

In the libvirt.org for test driver it is mentioned as "It can start with a pre-configured default config, or be given a path to an alternate config".
Is the config is an xml file where we mentioned some dummy data so that the test driver will return it as response. If yes then where can I find this dummy file?

As mentioned earlier my intention is to mock qemu calls. so it test driver works then I'm planning to remove the qemu driver and register "test" driver as "qemu" driver and take the fake data from the config file. Please let me know which are the files I need to look into to register "test" as "qemu" and make its operations to work.

Thanks In Advance,
Arun V

Rather than trying to write your own RPC handler, have you considered
using the existing libvirt-java bindings and just targetting the
test:/// URI connection?  This will give you a fairly reliable exposure
to the libvirt APIs, without actually needing a working qemu.

The .x files implement the driver API; so also does the test driver.
Basically, src/libvirt.c is the public API, which then delegates to the
appropriate driver based on what URI you connected to; if the URI is
remote (as qemu:/// and all other stateful drivers are), then libvirt.so
passes it to src/remote/remote_driver.c to be bundled up into RPC calls
which mirror the semantics of the public API.  If you want to install
your own mock driver, it may be easier to build a new URI and implement
the same C interface as the test driver (see src/test/test_driver.c)
than it is to implement your own RPC parser.

Again, instead of trying to write your own RPC server, I'd instead focus
on utilizing the existing test:/// driver as your point of mocked calls.

As this is mostly development-related, I've set the reply-to to
libvir-list (we can drop libvirt-users from the rest of this thread).
