Subject Converting tests to junit
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2007 14:39:49 GMT
Having a wish to contribute to the test conversion effort I've been 
looking at the wiki to figure out where to start.

I found this wiki page, 
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/KillDerbyTestHarness, that has a list of 
all the subsuites from the old harness testsuite and a status for the 
number of tests converted. The last update on this page seems to have 
been in May, so I'm not confident it is totally up to date with the 
current status. Anyhow, from that page I gathered there was a focus on 
the derbylang suite, which seemed a good place to start, so I looked at 
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/LangJunitTestConversion for the details.

Wanting to start with something not too big to get to know the junit 
framework first, I found the tests logStream.java and errorStream.java, 
that are related to the same area and aparently noone is working on.

So, I hope I can just create a jira for the conversion of these two 
tests, and add the jira to the "notes" column on 
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/LangJunitTestConversion, and that will 
be sufficient to avoid anyone else starting to work on the same tests? I 
also hope that it is sufficient to look at that page to make sure noone 
else is allready working on it, or should I search jira as well? Anyhow, 
I'm asking here to be sure.

I was a bit surprised to find these two tests that test functionality of 
the derby error stream in the derbylang suite, which I expected to be 
only sql-related tests. Maybe they didn't fit well in any other suites 
either. Is it a goal for the conversion to keep basically the same set 
of subsuites as in the old harness testsuite?
