Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4089) It should be possible to run unit tests right after "ant all"
Date Tue, 10 Mar 2009 15:56:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4089?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12680518#action_12680518

Aaron Digulla commented on DERBY-4089:
--------------------------------------

The default should work for most people, that's why it's the "default". As soon as you know
your way around the source, a developer can define his own property file and override the
default. But that simply doesn't work for novices.

Also, novices have no commit rights. So I can't see how making life harder for them is going
to help solve deeper development issues with Java and the Derby team. :)

> Right now, the property "derby.junit.classpath" is empty by default. There should be
an ant target which sets the correct classpath to run all tests after an initial checkout
and "ant all".
> The current situation is very confusing to beginners and people who try to build Derby
for the first time. For example, when running the tests, I got this exception:
> java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.derbyTesting.junit.EnvTest
> but that class was there, the file was there, everything was correct. Googling for the
error didn't turn anything up, either. It took me a while to believe that build.xml just wouldn't
try to setup a classpath for the tests.
