* Rework QNetworkReply tests to use docker-based test serversRyan Chu2018-07-277-0/+112
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This change frees the tests of their dependence on the Qt internal test server (qt-test-server.qt-test-net). It makes the developers run the tests out of Qt testing infrastructure. If the user has installed Docker engine on their host, the test servers will be built up inside separate Docker containers, and then, the test case goes with the Docker-based test servers. Otherwise, the test case will keep using the Qt internal test server. Task-number: QTQAINFRA-1686 Change-Id: I518bc3675bfd658938509744b0e7e0610bc8bf66 Reviewed-by: Jędrzej Nowacki <>
* Enable mDNS service discovery in Docker-based test serversRyan Chu2018-07-104-34/+33
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | To resolve the challenge of connecting Docker containers from the host without extra user-efforts, Avahi is used to publish the Docker-based test servers (Docker containers) on a local network. It is a free Zeroconf implementation, and it provides multicast DNS (mDNS) service discovery. By default, mDNS only resolves hostname ending with the ".local" domain. In this change, the domain name of test servers is changed to "test-net.qt.local". As stated in the standard, the DNS query for a local domain will be sent to the mDNS multicast address. It avoids the need for root access to modify system files.

* Docker-based test servers for network-related Qt autotestsRyan Chu2018-07-0530-0/+898
The existing network test server has some limitations. Most notably, it is not accessible by every Qt developer. Also, some services don't allow simultaneous access, which causes flaky test results. Instead of centralizing all the services to one physical machine, the idea is to build up several dedicated servers inside separate Docker containers. 1. Create testserver.pri and integrate it into the make check command of Qt Test. 2. Define QT_TEST_SERVER flag for changing test parameters at compile time.
