Understood. It's a good start. Thanks for the report!

This is reasonable.
This pattern is typical for a stand-alone zc.async instance. This
will run the dispatcher in a thread. The next version (1.5) has an
argument to ``start`` to have the dispatcher run in the main thread,
if you'd prefer.
If you want a Zope 2 instance to run the zc.async dispatcher/worker
threads, then it might be better to get the DB that zope is using. In
Zope 3, there's an event you can subscribe to to get the DB. Maybe
there's something similar in Zope 2 these days?

From your use of ``Job`` below, I suspect this takes a single
argument, ``portal``, in the real code.

This is fine, but I wonder if you have to add the _p_jar...
Maybe for this upcoming version I just added the registration to adapt
a persistent object, in addition to a connection? Not sure offhand,
and I have to run. I'd expect this to not require the _p_jar: ``queue

If you're not going to do anything further with the job, then you
could just leave out ``job =``, of course.

Looks fine. :-)
If you discover that you are doing the same Zope2-specific (or Plone-
specific) setup/teardown for all your jobs, notice that you can have a
Job subclass that defines setUp and tearDown. See what z3.py does,

Maybe you are running your tests while you are running your app
instance, and that both of them actually connect to your real live ZEO.
Or maybe you are starting a dispatcher yourself, *and*
zc.async.ftesting.setUp is starting a dispatcher? (ftesting setUp
does start one.)
