Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Commons CLI 1.2 (RC5)

That would certainly help with testing...

I tried removing the test case with the Java 1.4 class, and the test
still fails on Java 1.3.1_20 (Win/XP).

The failure is

Cannot instantiate test case: testSimpleShort
(java.lang.InstantiationException:
org.apache.commons.cli.ParserTestCase
    at java.lang.reflect.Constructor.newInstance(Native Method)
    at junit.framework.TestSuite.createTest(TestSuite.java:131)
    at junit.framework.TestSuite.addTestMethod(TestSuite.java:114)
    at junit.framework.TestSuite.<init>(TestSuite.java:75)

This appears to be caused by the setUp() method which creates an
Options() instance and adds 3 options to it. If the code is changed to
add only 2 options, the failure does not occur, but of course some of
the tests fail. Odder yet, adding another option allows setUp() to
work, but still some tests fail.

Looks like Java 1.3.1_20 or JUnit 3.8.1 or the combination is broken.

Is it worth trying to support 1.3 now?
