Subject Re: [jira] Created: (HARMONY-263) Enable more LUNI tests to run using XML exclusion list
Date Wed, 29 Mar 2006 09:18:49 GMT
Does anyone object to this going in?

It is the XML exclusion list that was described a while ago.  My
recollection is that people thought that it was a good idea -- but just
rechecking before I go ahead.

This will only be applied to LUNI at the moment, but the technique is
generally applicable.

and excludes.xsd under support/src/test/resources) although it may be more helpful to move
these to under the top level make directory. Similarly, the JUnit decorator class tests.util.SomeTests
is already in the tree under support/src/test/java.

to run a decorated version of the LUNI AllTests suite. Perhaps rather than being an outright
replacement of the existing "run.tests" target this could be a peer target called something
like "run.tests.with.exclusions" ?

to complete and will run the java.net.* tests that rely on network servers (HTTP, FTP, SOCKS)
being available as documented in the README included in HARMONY-57. If the servers are not
available then failures will result which, I suppose, forces us to think about how we might
bundle test servers into the tree and have them auto-started as the tests are run.
