Subject Re: [drlvm][object][testing] Snapshot testing for uncompressed references mode
Date Mon, 31 Dec 2007 16:26:38 GMT
Alexey,

I think the suggestion was to switch temporarily.

To establish testing in both modes,
'-XX:vm.compress_references=[true|false]' option can be used
regardless of default mode. It just needs changes in CruiseControl to
specify this parameter.

Thanks,
Ilya.
