Subject Re: QA effort to support windows as a production platform
Date Wed, 07 Apr 2010 19:55:06 GMT
HI Vishal,
  I would be a good think to actually get cppunit working on windows (rather
than dropping it) since it would make you more confident on being able to
use the native libraries for windows.

Though there is already an open jira to try and compile librarires without
CPPIUNIT being installed on the machines.

http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-316


Would you want to try and take a shot at fixing the cppunit tests?

Would be great to have cppunit tests working on cygwin!


Thanks
mahadev
