Subject RE: [lang] DateUtils test fails under 1.2.2 and not under 1.4.2
Date Wed, 25 May 2005 01:50:12 GMT
I'd like to check 1.3.1 but... running "ant clean build-dist-2.1 test"
from src-zip does not make it past text tests:

     [echo] Running text package tests ...
     [java] Class not found "org.apache.commons.lang.text.TextTestSuite"

C:\temp\commons-lang-2.1-RC6\build.xml:206: Java returned: 1

(Ant 1.6.4 and Java 1.4.2_08)

have a 1.3 installation available so I don't know if it passes or fails 
under 1.3.

I propose that we put a condition around the test so that is only run
the Java version is 1.4, and add a note to the round method javadoc and
release notes stating that the round method may not work properly in all

cases involving DST rollovers in previous JVMs, with this case as an
