Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-3151) Reduce dependency on NetworkServerControl in TestConfiguration

Reduce dependency on NetworkServerControl in TestConfiguration
--------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DERBY-3151
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3151
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Test
    Affects Versions: 10.4.0.0
            Reporter: Kristian Waagan
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 10.4.0.0


Code has been added in TestConfiguration to allow for starting and stopping a Derby network
server.
Even if you know will not need this functionality, or you simply don't want to have this functionality
available, you must include derbynet.jar (or point to classes/).

I think this dependency should be reduced, by not having any instance variables and by not
importing the class with an explicit import statement. The existing instance variables are
not used.

With this planned change, you can run tests without including derbynet.jar on the classpath,
as long as they don't call 'startNetworkServer' or 'stopNetworkServer'. Most often these methods
will be called by a decorator.

The downside of this change, is that you won't get any error messages before the mentioned
methods are actually executed.
A typical error message:
Failed to invoke suite():java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/derby/drda/NetworkServerControl

I'm sure there are other solutions as well, but this one is really easy.
Any opinions on this change?
