Subject [jira] Commented: (EMAIL-64) Use wiser instead of dumbster for test cases
Date Tue, 13 Feb 2007 04:39:05 GMT


Bindul Bhowmik commented on EMAIL-64:


Before I dive into the changes I had a couple of questions:

1. Wiser is licensed under LGPL. Is that fine? I understand that we would not be distributing
the wiser code/binaries, but we would be linking to them. I am not strong on legal aspects
of licenses, so just clarifying.

2. Unlike dumbster, Wiser does not have any direct methods to check if the SMTPServer is running,
and the test code checks that at a multiple of locations. We could abandon that check all
together or we could check if the SMTPServer is running using two ways: check for the Thread
(SMTPServer starts the thread with its classname), or try to check if the socket is listening.
Wanted to know the preference of the community on this.

> Since the test cases depend on a snapshot of the dead project dumbster, the tests should
be changed to use the wiser test email server instead. Marking as 1.1 fix since this should
get done before 1.1 goes out the door.
