Subject Re: [jira] Created: (DERBY-2460) Create a framework for writing unit tests that will access a private fields of derby classes.
Date Fri, 16 Mar 2007 14:00:39 GMT
Hello Julius,

This is a thing we need, but I think you should change the issue name, 
which is not really in sync with the description.
It says "will access a private fields of derby classes". Accessing 
private fields is a whole different story, and is most definitely 
something we don't want to do.

You do mean package-private classes, right?
This will allow us to invoke all methods except private methods in these 
classes. The same goes for fields.



thanks,

> Create a testing framework for writing unit tests that will not test the functionality
but some other properties of the code like DRDA protocol, conditions of B-trees, behavior
of locking, etc. These tests may be written in a same way like the function tests are but
they will not test the public API but some underlaying Derby functions. So, there is a need
for the tests to access some package private properties/methods.
