Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-453) Create a test wrapper to run tests using BigDecimal in J2ME/CDC/Foundation
Date Thu, 15 Sep 2005 22:03:54 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-453?page=comments#action_12329492 ] 

Kathey Marsden commented on DERBY-453:

Deepa and I spoke briefly about this patch.  Here's the summary of my comments.

- There a couple of uses of Double still that can be removed
   1) in setObject it is used.
   2) new Double() is used in getBigDecimalString() to verify that the value is a number and
an exception thrown that matches the server internal  message that is thrown if you do getBigDecimal
on a non numeric value.   This may not work in all cases and seems a bit confusing.  Maybe
 better to just let the caller deal with the value as returned from getString

I noted that StmtCloseFunTest.java has  been changed to use long literal values in the Date
Constructor.  (The test was using a deprecated constructor.)  Deepa said this was because
Aparently J2ME doesn't have a Calendar class. so it's not clear how to construct the date
except by this method which other tests use.

> To run the above tests in this environment, test utility classes have to be written so
that the methods using BigDecimal are redirected depending on the VM environment. The initial
goal is to submit a patch for the test resultset.java. After this, sub-tasks will be opened
if changes are needed to run the other tests.
