Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3510) NetworkServerTestSetup should use the same JVM version for spawned servers as the test itself
Date Fri, 07 Mar 2008 14:21:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3510?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12576209#action_12576209

John H. Embretsen commented on DERBY-3510:

A potential improvement could be to change NetworkServerTestSetup around line 248:

-        al.add( "java" );
+        File javaBinDir = new File(BaseTestCase.getSystemProperty("java.home"), "bin");
+        File javaExec = new File(javaBinDir, "java");
+        al.add( javaExec.getAbsolutePath() );

This assumes that the java executable is called "java" and that it lives in a directory called
"bin" below the "java.home" of the current VM. Not 100% sure if it will work on all relevant
platforms, though.
Better suggestions are welcome...

>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Test
>    Affects Versions:
>         Environment: JUnit tests using spawned network servers
>            Reporter: John H. Embretsen
>            Priority: Minor
> org.apache.derbyTesting.junit.NetworkServerTestSetup is able to set up, start and stop
a Network Server in a separate process from the test JVM. This feature is needed by a number
of tests which require setting command line options at server startup. 
> Currently, NetworkServerTestSetup assumes that "java" is the name of the JVM executable
and that it is available in the default PATH. This is not always optimal, as it requires that
the tester is aware that the Network server does not necessarily run with the same JVM (version
and vendor) as the one being used to run the test itself.
> For example, if the PATH environment variable includes the path to JDK 1.5, but the test
is started using JDK 6, the server will not run with the same JVM version as the client, which
is probably not what the tester intended. Ideally this should probably be configurable, but
a good default seems to be to use the same version for spawned servers as for the test client.
