Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2378) SecureServerTest should not be using non-public apis
Date Tue, 27 Feb 2007 17:26:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2378?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12476236

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-2378:

This is an interesting topic which I would like to understand better. It seems that there
is a great deal of Derby's public API which is not visible in the relatively small number
of classes which we expose in the javadoc shipped with our distributions. For instance, error
messages and command line arguments are part of Derby's public API which we document in our
user guides but not in the javadoc.

I think it is reasonable to test that Derby conforms to the behavior documented in the user
guides. Is the issue here the actual imports? Is there a best practice for eliminating these
imports but still verifying that the code agrees with the user guides?

>          Components: Test
>    Affects Versions:
>            Reporter: Daniel John Debrunner
> Functional tests should not be written against Derby's public api, not its internals.
> One reason is that it will make it harder to run the tests against different versions
of Derby to test for regressions (e.g. run 10.3 tests against 10.4)
> The code imports these classes that are not part of the public api.
> import org.apache.derby.iapi.reference.Property;
> import org.apache.derby.iapi.tools.i18n.LocalizedResource;
> import org.apache.derby.impl.drda.NetworkServerControlImpl;
