Last Friday on June 11, 2010, we announced the winners of our CUBRID Bug Hunting Event held in Korea. We invited all developers to take a part in the annually organized event and to work their professional will upon our new upcoming release CUBRID 2008 R3.0. At CUBRID we believe in team development and in our Open Source Community, so this year again we've invited Korean enthusiasts to exercise their knowledge and professional experience around CUBRID.

The first time this event was held in September 2009 during one week period. This time the event was organized for three days between June 1st and 3rd. The participants were proposed to find possible internal bugs in the new development version of CUBRID 2008 R3.0, which they could download from the event home page. We provided the definition and condition of the terms, as well as the guide how to join the event and find the bugs. Participants could take advantage of any materials, including the result of previous activities:

  • Sample codes from CUBRID Manual.
  • Step by step Guides from CUBRID Tutorials.
  • CUBRID's previous Release Notes.
  • List of bugs reported for the previous version of CUBRID: whether they persist or not.
  • Detecting problems during the upgrade process from previous versions.
  • Determining the mismatches between the results obtained from running the identical scripts on CUBRID and on other databases.
Additionally minor bugs were expected in:

  • Manuals: incorrect sample codes / wrong descriptions / broken links / bugs in codes
  • Installation: termination during the installation stage on different platforms
  • CUBRID Manager: failure to remotely access the host / bugs during DB management, user management / problems with Eclipse integration
  • API related: interface issues / unexpected application behavior / compatibility problems
  • Performance related: Load, Unload problems / indexing / bugs found during bulk data input
  • Operations related to: backup / restore / clone
The Final Outcomes:

Overall, there were 16 registered participants. 81 downloads of CUBRID 2008 R3.0 developer version were generated during the 3 day period. The event members submitted 65 bug reports, including software bugs, documentation typos, and the tutorial errors. Most bugs were found in manuals and at CUBRID Manager, as it's easy to find bugs on GUI tools, moreover, CUBRID 2008 R3.0 introduced numerous new SQL Syntax extensions which were effortless to test on CM.
