Subject Re: [j9][testing] some classlib unit tests fail
Date Tue, 17 Oct 2006 07:11:57 GMT
I think that the best choice is to fix the test by implementing test's
security manager. It would make the test be independent from
environment.

As a short-term solution the test run script may be fixed (use option
'-Djava.security.policy==').

Thanks,
Boris
