Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-1541) Numerous JUnit tests failing on Windows.

Richard M Feezel commented on DIRSERVER-1541:
---------------------------------------------

Stefan,

You are probably correct that there will be problems with Jar files.  I believe paths as expressed
within Jar files are platform independent while the file system path of the Jar file itself
will be platform dependent.  This means that the pattern passed to "ResourceMap" needs to
be platform independent and ResourceMap should internally deal with platform specific issues.
 I'll look into this tomorrow some time.  I'm still very new to the project and my understanding
of the existing code is obviously limited.

I'm actually surprise my patch works in XP 32-bit with the Sun JDK.  What JDK were you testing
on the Win7 64-bit?

> File names and paths are not being handled in a platform-independent manner is all cases.
> In particular, in regex matching patterns the "\" has special meaning.  On Windows the
"\" is used as the file directory separator character so a regex attempting to test for a
directory separator character must be constructed in a platform-dependent manner.
> Also, certain characters are not allowed in file names in Microsoft Windows.  Any attempt
to use such names must have these special characters "escaped" to safe characters.  Since
the "\" character is the directory separator character it is unsuitable for special character
escaping.
> Finally, in the JdbmStoreTest test, stores and indexes must be destroyed and/or closed
to permit deletion of the underlying files at completion of the test run.
