Subject [classlib][test]Is this test necessary?
Date Wed, 23 Aug 2006 03:38:43 GMT
The test case 
generally needs > 250 seconds on my thinkpad:
    public void test_Constructor() {
        // Test for method java.lang.OutOfMemoryError()
        try {
            StringBuffer large[] = new StringBuffer[100000];

            for (int i = 0; i < large.length; i++)
                large[i] = new StringBuffer(1000000);
        } catch (OutOfMemoryError e) {
        fail("No error generated");

IMO it is not a unit test of OutOfMemoryError constructor like its name, 
actually what it tries to test is the JVM memory management

I suggest to remove this testcase, at least it can be written like below 
to get same error thrown much quickly:

    StringBuffer large = new StringBuffer(Integer.MAX_VALUE);
