Subject Re: [GUMP@vmgump]: Project commons-math (in module jakarta-commons) failed
Date Sun, 05 Mar 2006 21:52:43 GMT
Niall reminded me of this.  Math has at least one test that requires 
swingui, which isn't there in JUnit HEAD.  As a result, Math was changed to 
depend on the packaged junit-3.8.x.jar so that it would still build.  Most 
other projects work fine with JUnit HEAD, so they don't even get attempted 
while JUnit is failing.

Ant only has an optional dependancy on JUnit HEAD, so it simply chooses not 
to create ant-junit.jar when it builds.  The result is that Math doesn't 
have ant-junit.jar available to it, so it fails.

Of course, the best thing would be to convince the JUnit people to fix the 
broken commit that is causing it to fail :).  A temporary solution would be 
to change Math depend on JUnit HEAD, and switch it back when JUnit starts 
building again.

Math's build.xml is generated from Maven though. It can't be the only
one - so why don't they fail too?

A Maven version thing?
