Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4183) Our regression tests use various jar files for which we don't have build scripts.
Date Fri, 11 Sep 2009 17:06:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4183?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12754217#action_12754217

Mark B commented on DERBY-4183:

Hi Rick,

1 One class file *is* necessary, in the dcl_emc2l jar file, there's no matching .java source,
it seems to me from my reading of the tests that it's a 'wrong' jar to test the ability of
derby to recognise such a beast :-)

2 I'll draft a fuller description of the changes; essentially, I've simply unpacked the original
jars into appropriate directories as close as possible to the location of the jars, then reconstructed
them according to such documentation as I found / my inspection of the originals;

3 I'm seeing that memory depletion all the time, even when I try to test a fresh svn co; I've
now cleared the java 1.4.2 that I had put [relatively innocuously I hope - I was thinking
it may be useful for testing different compile environments] in a directory under /home, the
sun documentation did say that installing it without root privileges it shouldn't affect the
global java settings, however unless it was that it's bizarre that my java now looks as though
it's acting up; no sign of actual settings changing at all though

I've been developing some java work recently, though when I make time I'll at least try uninstalling
/ reinstalling my java 6, possibly even reinstalling my OS; the errors were permgen space
errors, I went as far as setting the permgen space to 2 gigabytes, no change :-)

so I can't as yet definitively confirm that the patch passes all tests, though I had definitely
addressed all the errors that were ant / jar - specific; now until a fresh co tests correctly
I definitely won't be blaming the patch for the Memory depletion errors

Best regards
