Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-4726) Investigate updating Junit version required for Derby build and test
Date Sat, 01 Jun 2013 11:38:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4726?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13672062#comment-13672062

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-4726:

Now that Java 6 is the base level on trunk, I'd expect JUnit 4 to work.

> The derby build documentation BUILDING.html says the derby build requires JUnit 3.8.2.
Junit 3.8.2 is no longer available at junit.org but can be downloaded from:
> http://sourceforge.net/projects/junit/files/
> At a minimum  we need to update the download references but it would be good to move
ahead to JUnit 4 if possible., because who knows how long 3.8 will be generally available.

>  Knut mentioned the following useful history.
> - It used to be that Derby wouldn't build with JUnit 4, but now it seems to, perhaps
because we require JDK 1.5 in the build.
> - He thinks that  Junit 3.8.1 is still required for some small device platforms, because
even 3.8.2 doesn't work there
> - We recommend 3.8.2 in BUILDING.html is was that it was better on reporting errors.
In particular, failures in tearDown() don't mask failures in the test case (they did 3.8.1)
