Subject Re: [Slightly OT] JNDI question
Date Tue, 03 May 2005 17:32:40 GMT
We actually have a TestCase base class with methods for setting up individual 
mechanisms or the whole environment (jndi, jta/jts, datasources, hibernate's 
session factories, etc.).

We're currently using ObjectWeb's Carol for JNDI & JOTM for JTA, all starts up 
in less than a sec.

The datasources are created and binded in the JNDI tree programmatically in 
the test case.

JOTM is binded automatically at startup, we just have to rebind the 
TransactionManager and UserTransaction to the JNDI addresses where the app 
expects to find them.

Before current setup using JOTM/Carol, we used to setup Sun's JNDI filesystem 
SPI for test cases but now we're happier people ;-)
