Subject [jira] Resolved: (SCXML-93) SCXMLTestHelper generates a lot of serialisation files which are not tidied up
Date Tue, 25 Nov 2008 20:37:44 GMT


Rahul Akolkar resolved SCXML-93.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

I think the aspect of tidying up here is no different from what folks using any of the builds
should expect -- to elaborate, lets say you execute this command:

  mvn test

(or 'maven test', or 'ant'), you'll find a bunch of artifacts created in the target directory.
These persist until you clean the build, so in the above case a:

  mvn clean

will do the trick. The serialization files follow a similar pattern, they can be cleaned using
the corresponding clean command.

A useful advantage of using File I/O is that the artifacts can be introspected once you run
the tests and you can observe how certain changes to the datamodel or history affect size
on disk etc.

You are right that this can be replaced by using ByteArray I/O instead, but at this point
its unclear we should (its much harder to introspect serializations or track serialization
timelines that way).

Resolving as Won't Fix.

> SCXMLTestHelper generates files to test serialisation of classes in testExecutorSerializability()
