Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSERVER-1816) Unable to enable SSL to the APACHE DS
Date Wed, 22 May 2013 04:41:20 GMT


Bob Hehmann commented on DIRSERVER-1816:

Wrap up - I truly appreciate your candor. I didn't quite realize the testing difficulty. I
pretty much assume some level of automated testing across the board these days - a flawed
assumption on reflection. That is an awfully complex bit of kit to try to test by hand!

QA issues like this seem actually to be happening increasingly across the board. I deal a
lot in overall system integration, so tools like Java, Apache DS, and Tomcat are supporting
elements to higher level tools such as Atlassian products (JIRA, Confluence, ...) and IBM/Rational
(Jazz...). These in turn are just parts of overall toolkits supporting PMO and lifecycle for
extremely large application systems, plus those applications directly. Systems such as Healthcare
Line-Of-Business automation e.g. State Medicaid and commercial Health Insurance systems. Some
of these are open source, some like Atlassian commercial but heavily open-source inspired,
and some are pure old-fashioned closed source. And all of them have seemed to suffer recently
from disconcerting QA failures at a more basic level than I'd like to see as a member of a
corporate culture. It seems as if the pressure to release quickly, the complex stacks, and
the economics are no longer quite in balance.

Best wishes, and Cheers,

Bob Hehmann
