Today we would like to share how we test concurrency primitives in Kotlin Coroutines.

Many of our users are delighted with the experience of using coroutines to write asynchronous code. This does not come as a surprise, since with coroutines we are able to write straightforward and readable code, with almost all the asynchronicity happening under the hood. For simplicity, we can think of coroutines in Kotlin as super-lightweight threads with some additional power, such as cancellability and structured concurrency. However, coroutines also make the code much safer. Traditional concurrent programming involves manipulating a shared mutable state, which is arguably error-prone. As an alternative, coroutines provide special communicating primitives, such as Channel, to perform the synchronization. Using channels and a couple of other primitives as building blocks, we can construct extremely powerful things, such as the recently introduced Flows. However, nothing is free. While the message passing approach is typically safer, the required primitives are not trivial to implement and, therefore, have to be tested as thoroughly as possible. Simultaneously, testing concurrent code may be as complicated as writing it.
