Problems specific to OpenVMS





------- Additional Comments From meg.garrison@hp.com  2004-10-08 11:58 -------
Yes, file system differences could certainly account for the majority of the 
test failures.

Touchtests:
Hmm, I'll have to look into this a little deeper.

exec() return codes:
On VMS, success is odd, usually 1, but odd nonetheless, and failure is even.  
I'll check with the JVM folks and see if there is some kind of logical name we 
can specify to tell the JVM to behave differently.

isDirectory:
isDirectory does indeed work on OpenVMS.  However, on VMS the directory is a 
file named "somefoldername.DIR" (case of the extension is important, BTW), so 
if there is a file in the same directory as "somefoldername.DIR" with the 
name "somefoldername" (no extension), then when the call is made to 
File.isDirectory(new File("/a/b/c/somefoldername")), false is returned.  I 
suspect that is what is happening.  Note that if there is no file 
named "somefoldername" (no extension) then File.isDirectory(new File
("/a/b/c/somefoldername") will return true.

More on touch and exec a little later today.
