Subject Re: [general][tests]To restrict the side-effect of junit tests by launching it in a different VM.
Date Mon, 27 Nov 2006 05:11:47 GMT
When you changed the test case to avoid side-effect have you made the test
weaker? If not I'd prefer to run them in a fork mode "once" because in this
case they run faster.
