Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5940) Disable securityMechanism=8 in NSSecurityMechanismTest on ARM platforms
Date Tue, 02 Oct 2012 09:39:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5940?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13467593#comment-13467593

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-5940:

I've seen this problem too. As I mentioned in my comment on DERBY-3106, I don't think it's
worthwhile fixing the underlying problem, since we no longer recommend the use of securityMechanism=8.
So disabling the test cases on ARM sounds fine to me. +1 to the approach in the 1a patch.

> The security mechanism strong password substitution (securityMechanism=8) uses code that
relies on entropy, which seems to be in short supply on some ARM systems. This includes the
ARM server farm available in the ASF build/test farm.
> I will disable tests using strong password substitution in NSSecurityMechanismTest on
ARM platforms to be able to run the test to completion within a reasonable time.
> DERBY-3106 and DERBY-5651 are relevant.
