I agree that this can be confusing.  There is some documentation on the harness 


but maybe you've already read that and are still uncertain?

In a word, there are suites and there are sub-suites.  For a given suite 
<suiteA>, all of the tests in <suiteA>.runall are run, PLUS all of the 
sub-suites listed in the "suites" property of the <suiteA>.properties file. 
Sub-suites are run using their own properties PLUS any properties inherited from 
their parent suite.  If the parent suite and subsuite both define a property, 
the parent suite's property takes precedence.

That said, the suite that gets run every night is the "derbyall" suite.  So in 
order for a test to run every night, it must be part of a subsuite (either 
directly or through several depths of recursion) that is specified in the 
"suites" property of the derbyall.properties file.

One of the subsuites that derbyall runs is "derbynetmats", which will run all of 
the tests listed in derbynetmats.runall PLUS four other sub-suites listed in 
derbynetmats.properties.  Since the "framework" property in 
derbynetmats.properties is "DerbyNet", that means that all tests/sub-suites run 
from derbynetmats will run against the server using the JCC driver.

*SO*, in order to make a test run against the server every night, you have to 
ensure that one of the following is true:

1) the test is included (either directly or by recursion) in one of the 
subsuites listed in derbynetmats.properties,
2) the test is listed in derbynetmats.runall.

In your case, since the ConcurrentImplicitCreateSchema.java test isn't part of 
any of the sub-suites listed in derbynetmats.properties (it's in the "derbylang" 
suite), you have to add it to the derbynetmats.runall file.

I don't think that's as clear as I'd like it to be, but hopefully it helps.  And 
if it doesn't...well, the important thing is that you add your new test to the 
"derbynetmats.runall", and trust that that'll work ;)

The "derbynetclientmats" suite has "derbynetmats" as a sub-suite.  That means 
that all files in derbynetmats.runall will be run as part of derbynetclientmats, 
as well.  Thus, if you add your new test to derbynetmats.runall, you will NOT 
have to add it to derbynetclientmats.runall; it will be included by recursion.

Hope that helps,
