Subject Re: [classlib] Merging frameworks for testing serialization - first step
Date Sat, 24 Jun 2006 03:15:53 GMT
Welldone stepan!

I have a small question about the sample from serialization page[1]:


public void testSerializationCompatibility()
        throws Exception {

    SerializationTest.verifyGolden(new SomeSerializableClass());
}

Any argument for  ****.golden.ser?  Typing error?

Thanks!
