Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-892) add mechanism for specifying policy file for individual function tests
Date Thu, 18 May 2006 22:01:06 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-892?page=comments#action_12412433 ] 

Andrew McIntyre commented on DERBY-892:

Wow, thanks for cooking up a great patch from my half-baked idea. This looks good, I've gone
ahead and committed what you have to the trunk with revision 407642, as I think it's a very
good improvement

Couple of minor things:

- a property to replace the standard policy file completely would be nice. e.g. setting the
property derbyTesting.replacePolicyFile=true would not copy the standard policy file just
the test-specific one. Need to think about where and how to set that property for a single
test. In the _app.properties? If so, need to think about how we will load the _app.properties
and check for the property before we've actually run the test.

- document the new functionality and property in java/testing/README.htm

Please let me know if you can followup with a patch for those, otherwise I'll take care of
it. Leaving this issue open until then.

> It would be nice to be able to specify a test-specific policy file.
> This should get handled similar to existing properties, i.e. get specified in a test_app.properties
file (or, for a suite, in the suite.properties file).  The file should then be copied into
the correct place.
> Note, that the 'old' functionTests harness (as opposed to junit tests) includes a check
for a property called 'serverPolicyFile' (in harness/jvm.java). The name is a left over from
when the policy file was only used for/by network server, and should be renamed - derbyTestPolicyFile,
for instance. It is not used anywhere at present, and not specific to network server. It would
be nice if this could be expanded, or, if not used, removed.
> The default policy file used is the derby_tests.policy file under functionTests/util.
> Also, currently, the property can only be used with RunTest - for further traction, it
should probably get passed on through RunSuite/RunList.
> Once confirmed to be working, the property should get documented in <trunk>/java/testing/README.htm.
