Subject Re: [classLib]Given a long value, RI behaves differently on windows and linux (and TestNG?)
Date Fri, 28 Jul 2006 06:04:10 GMT
But from the bug it follows that SUN result depends on long-to-int
So you never know if result if positive (OK) or negative (Exception).
I vote just to do it right and to ignore buggy RI behaviour in this case.
