Subject Re: [classlib] Tests for serialization – which package, name?
Date Thu, 27 Apr 2006 14:42:36 GMT
I say leave them mixed.  We are no more likely to want to run
serialization tests separately than we are locking tests etc. and trying
to layout the tests on disk to represent all the different metadata
about each test case is not going to work.

Regards,
Tim
