Quick Overview

To run reftest tests on windows mobile you need to:

  • install a device agent on your phone
  • get the scripts on your desktop (as patches or a .tar file) testroot
  • from your desktop run scripts to execute the tests

Installing the device agent

Download [test-agent.exe] to your phone.

I recommend putting it in the / directory and [creating a shortcut] in /windows/startup.

Now you have a way to telnet to the device:

telnet <ip> 27020

Getting the Tests (local build)

Edit your mozconfig to contain the following lines:

ac_add_options --enable-tests

Get the source and build according to instructions.

Getting the Tests (ftp)

In order to do this, you need to download 1 file from [ftp]:

These links might change as the versions change, but find the wince-arm.tests.tar.bz2 file and you will be good to go.

Download the file and unpack it on your local system in a clean directory.

Getting the scripts

There are two method for getting the python scripts to run these tests:

Running the tests

I am going to refer to $(testroot) which if you are in a local build, it is $(xul_objdir)/dist/test-package-stage, if you used ftp from the server, it is the directory where you unpacked the package and tests files.

cd $(testroot)/reftest
python --remote-webserver= --device=

  • NOTE: I have a server setup on before starting this process.
