Add a facility to override the default set of old versions to be tested in the upgrade tests.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DERBY-3982
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3982
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Test
    Affects Versions: 10.5.0.0
            Reporter: Ole Solberg
            Assignee: Ole Solberg
            Priority: Minor


In my testing I have seen a need for performing upgrade testing from local/internal non-public
"versions" of Derby.
That is, having local/internal changes to some older branch and allowing upgrade testing from
this (not yet public) version.


One solution is to locally modify the 'VERSIONS' table of the upgradetests '_Suite', but this
means modifying the source for each such case.

A more flexible solution is to override the default versions (given in 'VERSIONS') by using
a property giving a file which lists the versions to test upgrade from. The location to local
version jars can currently be given by the 'derbyTesting.oldReleasePath' property. The list
of versions could be given by a property 'derbyTesting.oldVersionsPath'.

This will also easily allow us to skip testing upgrade from a specific version. (This can
already be done by not having the version jars available.)

The list of versions given via the property should be used whether versions (jars) are available
locally (as given by the 'derbyTesting.oldReleasePath' property or fetched from the Apache
Derby svn repository ('http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/db/derby/jars').


I have a patch for this which I will submit for review.
