Subject Re: "TCK" domain app (ISIS-108)
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2011 09:12:29 GMT
Hi Kevin,
what I do is to import the entire framework/trunk tree into Eclipse, and 
this tree *would* include the various TCK modules.

As things are right now in the SVN repo, the TCK modules are all in a 
single directory.  The reason I want to break it up is that - 
realistically - not every component is likely to use the TCK for a 
while.  Having the TCK together might imply to the casual browser that 
there is TCK coverage when there isn't any.

Let me complete the commit to what I was proposing, and we can see how 
it feels.


PS: or, as an alternative, maybe we should simply delete those TCK 
modules for viewers that don't have any automated tests.
