Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5155) Make testcases pass in non-English locale
Date Mon, 28 Mar 2011 14:00:06 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5155?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13012063#comment-13012063

Houx Zhang commented on DERBY-5155:

In this moment, there are two kinds of testing in Derby. One is junit test framework, and
the other is harness framework. Accordingly, resolvation on non-English locale can be considered
as three aspects:

1, for junit test framework, BaseTestCase, the root of all test cases, should be changed,
by setting locale to English in setup() and restoring it in teardown().

2, for harness test framework. RunTest and Runsuite, the entry for all .sql scripts, should
be changed, by setting locale before testing and restoring itg after that.

3, there are still some special situation. i.e. as pointed out by Knut in DERBY-4260, derbynet/NetworkServerControlClientCommandTest
will launch a separate process to run java command, so it's necessary to pass "-Dderby.ui.locale=en_US"
for the separate process.

So, IMHO, the general resolvation for non-English locale can cover 1 and 2-----maybe two subtasks
are needed? As to 3, we can deal with them individually.

Wish for your comments.

> There are a lot of derby testing depending on the English locale, which will fail in
a non-English locale. A general resolution should be provided.
