Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-4260) Make derbynet/NetworkServerControlClientCommandTest run regardless of the locale
Date Wed, 20 Apr 2011 14:37:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4260?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13022154#comment-13022154

Bryan Pendleton commented on DERBY-4260:

Typically, the Derby community prefers to work on multiple smaller patches, rather than a
single larger patch.
Each patch should address a single problem. We agree with you that this makes the SVN history
to comprehend. 

So, in the cases that you identify, we'd prefer to address the test case refactoring separately
from the non-English locale issues, as two patches rather than one.

Similarly, we try to avoid doing things like removing unneeded "import" statements or changing
or formatting/indentation of the code as part of a patch. The Derby code unfortunately has
a significant
number of whitespace issues, as it is a old and mature codebase that has been worked on by
programmers over the years, so we just accept those problems and try to avoid those changes
in our patches.

Meanwhile, Tiago, if you get a chance, can you confirm that this test now works properly for
you in
a non-English locale? Then I think you could close this job?

> The NetworkServerControlClientCommandTest has in it a check that will only run the test
if the locale is set to 'en'.
> It is open to suggestion the how to achieve this and whether it should be done. Since
the test is a pretty generic one, I think it should be ran regardless of the locale.
> Knut suggested we'd force the locale to 'en' on the setUp() and back to its previous
value on the tearDown(). On a first analysis this seems like the ideal method to go about
it. Just removing the check for the locale altogether might not be wise because of the calls
to assertFailedPing() that involve some hardcoded strings.
