Subject Re: Test framework

A test framework is quite essential part and we should define it on early
stage.

I think first we should agree on which test we are going to provide and form
requirements to them. There are no doubts that we will provide unit tests
for classlib. So unit tests are provided by code authors in JUnit format and
intended to verify all code functionality. They are placed in the same
package as tested code and run on the bootclasspath.

Anything to add? Are there any objections?

Conformance tests we will receive form TCK and what about other test suites:
functional, stress tests, performance? Will we create a separate framework
for each?

Thanks,
Stepan Mishura,
