Just run:   ant clean all

Please respond to

Subject:  RE: Test question

Ahhh...  Things are a bit clearer.  I wasn't aware of all-tests or junit.
So before I commit major changes I should really be running ant all-tests,
not ant functional-tests.  Thanks for the clarification.

Next questions:  are all these ant variants documented somewhere?  what's
run automatically?  ant all-tests?

Hi Russell!

These are part of the unit tests, and get run with "ant junit" or "ant
all-tests" or...

Unit tests test small, well defined pieces of code.  Functional tests test
"end-to-end" system behavior, which is why we have the whole
spawn-a-server-then-call-it pattern.  It so happens we use JUnit as a
framework for both kinds of tests.
