No thanks to you an Ugo I was able to isolate the problem.  Oh and yes 
this format for test cases would help greatly because it enables me to 
start the server in the test case, then execute the SUN JNDI test code.  
This way the test is standalone and hands free: maven will not choke if 
it does not fine a server running at a specific port which is never 
guarranteed to be present.

Sure they should be made available.   Well testing the server as you are 
doing is valueble.  This is what will weed out the bugs.  As you find 
them I'll do my best to kill the bugs.

That would be great!  A protocol test suite is something I've been 
looking for for ages.  Finally I thought we'd just have to build one.  
If you are interested in this you have my full support.  We can 
regression test the server right before every release this way.

Thanks again Stefan,
