Subject system properties in Derby unit tests
Date Tue, 07 Feb 2006 21:51:57 GMT
I would like to set a system property for a Derby unit test run  under 
the RunTest framework. Would appreciate advice on how to do this. The 
instructions in trunk/java/testing/README.htm say that I can crank up 
RunTest with -DtestSpecialProps and that is useful for a hand-run test. 
However, I don't know how to force a test to always have a certain 
System property when run inside derbyall. The *_app.properties files are 
nice too but they don't set system properties.

Just so that I'm not too mysterious here: I'm trying to set the system 
property "jdbc.drivers" to force autoloading of drivers under jdk1.4. I 
need this property to be set when the VM cranks up--setting it later on 
does me no good.
