#12979 closed (fixed)

TestCase disables savepoint_commit, savepoint_rollback

TestCase uses transactions to speed up tests. This is reasonable, well-documented behavior.

However, there is no benefit in disabling savepoint_commit and savepoint_rollback. With these functions disabled, there is no way to recover the transaction if an IntegrityError occurs.

Fixing this is trivial (I'll attach a patch).

Isn't this ticket similar to #12087 ?

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by forest

No, #12087 deals with TransactionTestCase whereas this ticket is specific to TestCase.

Russell, does my patch look okay?

Prima facie, yes, it looks fine (as in, it does what it says it should). I need to have a bit more of a think about the consequences of this change, but on first inspection, it seems reasonable.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

(In [14061]) Fixed #12979 -- allowed using savepoints in TestCase (i.e. tests with transactions disabled), convert the GetOrCreate tests to use this.
