Subject [jira] Commented: (RIVER-304) Reactivate River jtreg tests
Date Sun, 27 Sep 2009 23:23:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RIVER-304?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12760128#action_12760128
] 

Jonathan Costers commented on RIVER-304:
----------------------------------------

I have run all jtreg tests from Ant and this is the result:

Test results: passed: 106; failed: 32
Report written to /home/jonathan/Documenten/NetBeansProjects/River/jtsk/trunk/qa/jtreg/JTreport/html/report.html
Results written to /home/jonathan/Documenten/NetBeansProjects/River/jtsk/trunk/qa/jtreg/JTwork
Error: Some tests failed or other problems occurred.
/home/jonathan/Documenten/NetBeansProjects/River/jtsk/trunk/qa/build.xml:147: Error: Some
tests failed or other problems occurred.
BUILD FAILED (total time: 19 minutes 26 seconds)

A lot of the failures are of course explained by comments made above.
Looking into ways to solve.
