Subject Re: test case
Date Sun, 17 Jun 2001 18:09:47 GMT
i've looked into junit etc. and thought a bit about ecs case testing

you're right that testing ecs should be like testing velocity - the 
major difference being that in ecs, java test classes would take the 
place of velocity templates. if you think that it's worth going ahead 
and developing a jUnit test for that encoding problem (i do), i'll go 
ahead and talk to gier about recycling some of the velocity basic 
testing code.

the one wrinkle is of course that we'd start off by testing that html 
was identical rather than equivalent (i've written something down to try 
and make it clear what i mean by this) but i think that this should be 
fine for now.


(aside - equivalent documents
to determine whether two html documents are logically equivalent is 
actually a much more difficult task than determining whether their files 
are identical. determining whether two xml documents are equivalent is 
non-trivial but easier. i'd say that the easiest way to determine 
equivalence would be to convert html->xhtml and then compare the xml 
documents. )
