Ant targets for running the JUnit tests were just committed.
See http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2006 and the comments in it.

Yes they are, initially the tests were in a separate package and then I 
guess the community decided to switch to the layout we have today.
This is also a temporary state, the faster we can do the conversion the 
faster this problem disappears. :-)

For a java test it is easy, if the class extends from BaseTestCase or 
TestCase then it is a Junit test.

For the sql tests it is harder, one has to look at the JUnit test that 
runs the scripts and see if it is listed there. The language tests use 
the LangScripts class to run the SQL files, it has a list of about 15 
tests that run as JUnit fixtures now.

Not sure why, it seems more like there is an issue with your test. It 
seems to be leaving transactions open once the fixtures have finished.

As above using the defaultSuite() method.

I've also added some more information to the wiki on how to do various 
items, please look at these pages:


Thanks for working on the tests.
