Hi Erik,
So the sample policies were designed as test cases to test the major 
features of SPL.
That was one of the reasons why they were part of the JavaSPL module 
initially (shipping them as samples was an after thought).
 We have a couple of 'ComputerSystem' related polices those are more like 
samples (and there are no junit tests associated with them)

I agree that pure unit tests that don't require visual inspection would be 
ideal but IMO its a non-trivial task. If you like we can setup conference
calls to discuss this in more detail?

Please respond to


test cases


I'm promised to provide some test cases, but in the form the tests are 
now, you can only recognize failures by visual means. Secondly, the tests
are not appropriately structured. See:

Splcore has main classes and unit tests. OK
Javaspl has main classes. OK
JavaSPL-Samples has sample policies and sample API usage. It also has unit
tests, but these can only be validated visually.

I propose moving the tests from JavaSPL-Samples to JavaSPL, since samples
should only contain samples, and rewrite these tests using junit 

I can patch those, but if beforehand you can review/apply the patches in
JIRA it's great.
