Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1785) junit tests fail with permission access problems when run with j9 jvms
Date Thu, 05 Oct 2006 17:22:20 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1785?page=comments#action_12440184 ] 
Myrna van Lunteren commented on DERBY-1785:

I'm assigning this to me because I keep forgetting the number. If someone else feels interest,
be welcome to take it away. 

In the mean time, I have tried to find out what is wrong with this and I've been unsuccessful
so far.
In DERBY-855 Dan stated that he had found a problem with the security manager and had reported
this to IBM. I checked on the status of that problem; it is fixed in the follow-up release
of wctme5.7_foundation (called weme6.1, which is based on jdkj2ME specification 1.1). I tested
with that product and indeed the problem Dan saw has been fixed...

However, I still see the access permission problems with junit with that version.
I will continue to investigate. I think this is an important detail - we have said we're supporting
JSR169, yet it appears the only check we have are our test runs with "j9" foundation. If someone
else is running JSR169 tests, I hope they'll announce it.

The problem needs to be better identified, and possibly a fix needs to be arranged.

As a workaround there are 2 approaches:
 - ignore the failing tests. This basically means skipping every junit test. We can do this
for each test as it gets morphed into a junit test, which means a ridiculous maintenance task,
or in the test harness. But this would hollow out the testing for JSR169 support.
- make the junit tests not run with security manager if the jvm is j9. This seems fairly ugly

(third option I thought maybe a separate policy file could be made, but judging from the error,
it isn't having the permissions to read the policy file, so I'm not sure that will work.)

> The junit tests have been made to run with security manager.
> Until now, using the org.apache.derbyTesting.functionTests.harness classes, there was
exception logic that stopped the j9 jvms from running with security manager, but that's now
changed for the junit tests.
> For instance, the test store/bootAllTest.junit fails with the following error:
> There was 1 error:
> 1) testSettingBootAllPropertyWithHomePropertySet(org.apache.derbyTesting.functionTests.tests.store.BootAllTest)java.security.AccessControlException:
