Subject java unit vs. system tests
Date Wed, 27 Sep 2006 03:53:35 GMT
Perhaps I'm missing something, but are the Qpid Java unit tests  
really unit tests? To me they seem more like system tests. One  
critical aspect of a unit test is isolation, typically achieved via  
mock objects, but when I look through the code I don't really see the  
isolation I expect to see.

Does anybody have any coverage figures for these tests? Perhaps  
someone familiar with the tests could file JIRAs for the parts known  
to lack coverage.

Again, assuming I'm not missing something, this is another reason why  
I advocate (and am still working on) moving to maven. It will force  
us to get our testing structures in order, will make it easier to add  
tests wherever required, and will also give us code coverage  
essentially for free.
