Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-514) Integrate upgrade tests into test suite
Date Tue, 28 Mar 2006 18:24:35 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-514?page=comments#action_12372134 ] 

Deepa Remesh commented on DERBY-514:

Rick, Thanks for the suggestion. I have been trying something along similar lines but when
I am running the test using the test harness, the test jvm does not see the system properties
set on the command-line. I tried using jvmflags to pass in the properties to the test jvm
but this allows only 1 property to be passed because of known limitation (DERBY-1091). I think
we will have to first extract the location of new jars from the user's classpath (I'm working
on this now). Once this is done, I can try to pass in the old jar location in jvmflags property
to the test jvm. Your idea of the build script generating a properties file with location
of the old jars sounds good. I will think about how to do this. Thanks again for looking into

Adding the upgrade test to the harness seems to be more involved task than what I expected.
So I am planning to break the changes in derby-514-patch1-v1.diff into smaller patches and
will attach them. Please note that derby-514-patch1-v1.diff is not ready for commit. However,
I would appreciate any other feedback on it.

> Currently there are no upgrade tests in the derbyAll suite.
> The upgrade tests java/testing/org/apache/derbyTesting are run by script and require
that the version to be tested by specified on the command line so that the classpath can be
> # runphases old_major old_minor old_engine new_engine
> #
> # e.g.
> #
> # runphases 10 0 c:/derby/ c:/derby/trunk/jars/sane
> Perhaps this script can be rewritten in Java using class loaders and  previous Derby
verssions such as 10.0 and 10.1 be checked in so that this testing can   be incorporated into
the derbyAll test suite.
