Subject Tests and forking
Date Sun, 05 Sep 2004 21:23:34 GMT
Last night I changed the global (reactor) build to no longer fork unit 
tests by default.  The following modules have tests that will not 
complete without forking:

axis
j2ee
j2ee-schema
network
remoting
security
system
transaction

Of these modules, I believe that only the system module has tests must 
be forked.  The rest of the modules seem to be failing because the 
tests assume that the vm has been launched in the module directory, and 
open files using relative paths.

I have already fixed the connector module which had this problem by 
introducing a new system property using these entries in module 
project.properties file:

# Pass basedir of this module as a system property to tests
maven.junit.sysproperties=geronimo.test.basedir
geronimo.test.basedir=${basedir}

Then in the tests, I use this entry to determine the base directory 
module:

private static final File basedir = new File(
         System.getProperty("geronimo.test.basedir",
         System.getProperty("user.dir")));

Using this, we should be able to execute the tests from the global 
(reactor) build, on an individual module basis, and from an ide 
(assuming the test runner is executed from the module dir or you 
explicitly set the geronimo.test.basedir system property).

If you would like to help with the conversion to non-forked tests, 
please let everyone know which module you are working on.
