Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5674) Improve Derby's Code Coverage - GSoC 2012 Project
Date Wed, 28 Mar 2012 01:57:22 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5674?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13240108#comment-13240108

Echo commented on DERBY-5674:

I am a final year postgraduate at Chinese Academy of Sciences. This project attracts me since
recently I am practicing agile development, such as TDD, refactoring and so forth. There will
be a lot of spare time to spend before graduate. While coding for an open source community
is so cool during the the interval, from my point of view, you can not just fetch more programming,
communicating, learning skills, but also the attitude of contribution to a group which I think
is the best quality for a human being, especially an open-minded programmer.
I am gonna be deeply familiar with this project and discuss with mail list, then give a detail
Thank you.

> This year's edition of Google Summer of Code includes, once again, the Apache Software
Foundation. As I did last year, I'm offering to mentor a student again this year, this time
for a different project.
> For this project, the student is required to have some basic knowledge of JUnit and of
how code coverage works. Currently some packages of Derby have poor code coverage. Emma defines
the minimum acceptable code coverage as 70% and some engineers suggest a minimum of 80% is
> Students are invited to look at [1] to get familiar with Emma's code coverage reports
on Derby.
> A few suggestions of classes that require improvements are:
> - org.apache.derby.client.net - importnat package with poor coverage.
> - org.apache.derby.iapi.types - several classes not tested at all and others with poor
> - org.apache.derby.iapi.jdbc - could use extensive improvements.
> - org.apache.derby.impl.io - another package with poor coverage.
> The candidate students are also expected to come up with their own schedule for the tests
they plan on creating and to discuss this schedule publicly on the mailing list.
> After a student applies, a small interview will be conducted on IRC as part of the ASF's
evaluation process.
