PJSIP has been equipped with an automated testing script (called test scenarios) since version 1.6. This article explains what it is and how to configure it.


The automated testing framework automatically and continuously updates, configures, builds, and performs various unit tests on PJSIP distribution, and submit the result to PJSIP's CDash test dashboard. The scenario uses CCDash (client for CDash; note the extra "c") framework to automate the tasks.

Supported targets:


  1. Checkout PJSIP source code from SVN
  2. Download and install CCDash (click the link for the info)
  3. Download and install any features to be used/tested, e.g. Intel IPP, Symbian APS/VAS plugin, etc.

Configuring and Running Test Scenarios

The general steps to configure automated test script on a platform are as follows:

  1. Go to directory tests/automated inside pjsip distribution.
  2. Choose the appropriate scenario template for your target/test objective. A template is an XML file containing ccdash commands to perform automated tests for a particular target. The PJSIP distribution have been equipped with the following templates:
Target platform Template file name Description Requirements
Makefile based (Linux, Mac OS X) gnu.xml.template Default settings -
Linux, Mac OS X with IPP gnu-ipp.xml.template Intel IPP Intel IPP and samples
MSVC/Win32 inc. WM msvc.xml.template Default settings -
Symbian/S60 3rd Ed symbian.xml.template Default settings -
Symbian/S60 3rd Ed symbian-aps.xml.template Nokia APS and APS-Direct Nokia APS plugin
Symbian/S60 3rd Ed symbian-vas.xml.template Nokia VAS and VAS-Direct Nokia VAS plugin
iPhone iphone.xml.template iPhoneOS one iPhone SDK must be installed
  1. From the template, you will then create the actual scenario file by running This is needed to instantiate the template using configurations that are specific to your host. Sample session:
     $ cd tests/automated
     $ ./ scenario.xml.template -o scenario.xml
    The above command will produce scenario.xml scenario file.
  2. For testing, run the scenario by running:
     $ ./ scenario.xml
    This will perform the automated tests and submit the result under "Experimental" group on CDash. Depending on which test is being run, it may take between two minutes to two hours to complete. You may press Ctrl-C to stop the execution.
  3. Once you're satisfied that the scenario(s) will work correctly, run to perform both "Continuous" and "Nightly" builds on the specified scenario(s):
     $ ./ scenario1.xml [scenario2.xml ...]
    The script will run the automated tests in the scenario(s) everytime changes occur in the repository, or at every 00:00:00 GMT for the "Nightly" build.
  4. Go to PJSIP's CDash test dashboard to check the test results. Note that test results are only submitted once all tests in a scenario are completed.
  5. Now the automated test will run everytime there is a new checkin in the repository, or at every 00:00:00 GMT for the "Nightly" build.

The Templates

The detailed steps to configure each template will be explained below.


This configures, build, and tests with default settings. To perform this test:

 $ ./ -t gnu -o gnu.xml gnu.xml.template
 $ ./ gnu.xml


Template for testing IPP.


  • Intel IPP and samples
  • Environment variables:
    • IPPARCH (optional)
  • IPP path added to LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Sample session:

 $ export IPPROOT=/opt/intel/ipp/
 $ export IPPSAMPLES=/home/bennylp/Desktop/opt/ipp-samples
 $ (optional) export IPPARCH=em64t
 $ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH='$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/intel/ipp/'
 $ ./ -t gnu -o gnu-ipp.xml gnu-ipp.xml.template
 $ ./ gnu-ipp.xml


Template for testing iPhone.


  • on Mac OS X
  • at least one iPhone SDK must be installed

Sample session:

 $ ./ -o iphone.xml iphone.xml.template
 $ ./ iphone.xml


  • currently there's no way to select which iPhone SDK to use, as the automatically picks up the latest version of SDK installed.
