Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-4183) Our regression tests use various jar files for which we don't have build scripts.
Date Mon, 07 Sep 2009 14:08:57 GMT

Mark B updated DERBY-4183:

    Attachment: testjars.diff


so it looks as though the signed jar aspect is mostly a red herring; as I would have hoped
a signature won't be necessary for *every* checksum; it seems as though some of the wrong
checksums are deliberate - though the checksum aspect perhaps needs documenting as I've mostly
simply imported the old [often apparently wrong] checksums as manifest file entries; there
is one place that a signed jar is necessary, so I've added ant script to generate the necessary
key then sign;

one of the jars is a database, so it really would be unwieldy uncompressed, I've made a zip
of it to then compile the jar from;

generally of course I would possibly need an svn branch to commit the binary changes to -
alternatively I could make a tarball of the java/testing/ directory; the actual jar changes
may safely be omitted, I suppose I'd svn rm the jars themselves as there is now the dynamic

basically for jar files that are compiled from source, I'm creating directories containing
the source files, then recompiling from there;  I've included the test-jar creation in the
'normal' ant build, though all the test-jar creation could be put into its own directory as
an independent jar build;

I'd be happy to hear your comments so far - it needs some additional testing though I seem
to have managed the main hurdles

Best regards

> We should add build scripts for these jar files. This is a mini-project suitable for
a newcomer.
