Subject Re: [classlib][accessibility] isolating tests (WAS: [classlib][tests] Refactoring breakage)
Date Wed, 29 Nov 2006 05:15:59 GMT
Removing the dependency was more trivial than I expected, so I just
went ahead and committed it.

There were only three pieces of functionality being used, neither of
which had any relation to Swing.
* Exception testing - rather than using a try with a fail if no
exception, an exception test method and a exception runner class were
being used. This little framework is embedded into the
* PropertyChangeListener impl - the BasicSwingTestCase has a utility
implementation of a beans PropertyChangeListener that a test was using
to assert change events.
* isHarmony() checks - There were a handful of places performing
isHarmony checks, but everyone of the tests fails on an RI even with
these checks, so it wasn't serving much of purpose.

TODO - What I did notice with these tests is that many of them make
assumes about class fields being package-private and asserting
conditions directly against the fields. This compiles and works
against Harmony, but doesn't compile or work against any RI. This
should probably be cleaned up, so that the tests are asserting the
public contracts.
