Timer tests will fail on slower machines; unit tests should not be enviornment dependent to
pass
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: GERONIMO-2183
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-2183
     Project: Geronimo
        Type: Bug
    Security: public (Regular issues) 
    Versions: 1.2    
    Reporter: Jason Dillon
    Priority: Critical


Due to the usage of Thread.sleep() in the unit tests (very bad IMO)... and expecting a certain
number of invocations in a set period of time, the Timer unit tests can fail when run on slower
hardware, or on moderate hardware that is incurring a moderate to high load at the time the
tests are run.

Tests should not be dependent on the environment they run in... more so on the availability
of cycles to process the test to determine the success or failure of the test.

The timer tests should be revisited and augmented to produce valid results even on slower
or highly loaded systems.
