Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4862) Store version info in derbyTesting.jar and report its version with sysinfo, maybe with a warning that it should not be deployed
Date Thu, 10 Feb 2011 21:05:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4862?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12993223#comment-12993223

Kathey Marsden commented on DERBY-4862:

So I guess the first thing to look at is what you want the output to look like.  The warning
for having derbytesting.jar in the classpath should be something informative but not too alarmist
I think, so maybe a separate testing jars section  that prints only  if derbyTesting.jar is
found would be good.   and the warning might be something like: "Note:  While required for
running tests,  derbyTesting.jar should not be deployed for production, especially when running
under security Manager."  Do you think it would be worth while to show if jakarta and junit
are located  too?  It would be good for helping people running tests.  So first step would
be to decide what the ouptut might look like and post it for the community to review, with
information on the output if derbyTesting.jar is not found at all.  This will help make your
destination clear and make sure the community is on board.

For the code,  I think there will be a few spots that will have to be changed and a new file(s)
 stored in derbyTesting.jar which will probably create the need for a build.xml update, but
 the good news is that sysinfo already has code for the other jars and this will obviously
be very similar to that.

Some classes you may want to start looking at are:
org.apache.derby.iapi.services.info.ProductGenusNames (and the places these are referenced)

Lastly I think with the addition of the warning it would be good to add a release note that
explains the new warning and why it was added.

> derbyTesting.jar is put in a separate directory for releases, which is good in that it
tends to deter folks from accidentally deploying it, but sometimes for people that do run
tests, this means that it might accidentally get separated or mismatched with the product
jars. It would be nice if sysinfo reported derbyTesting.jar and its version if present and
could also print a warning that derbyTesting.jar should never be deployed in production.
