[PATCH] Introduce Unit Testing
------------------------------

         Key: JAMES-427
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-427
     Project: James
        Type: New Feature
    Reporter: Bernd Fondermann
    Priority: Minor


Patch, which incorporates Unit Testing into James project infrastructure.
Since there was no reaction on the dev-list since I proposed it a few days ago, I'm uncertain
if this is appreciated at all.

I think unit testing could become vital for 
+ helping QA
+ supporting refactorings (e.g. relaxing avalon dependencies)
+ testing while implementing new features (like IMAP)
+ reproducing bugs
+ testing fixes

I know that it's a long way to go to reach very good test-coverage.
But there is no risk in starting.
My determination would be to add 2 to 3 test methods per week.

It already helped me a lot understanding how parts of James work, although this is only my
first test for this codebase.

The patch utilizes JUnit 3.8.1 (junit.jar) and Ristretto (ristretto-1.0-all.jar, can be found
under http://columbo.sourceforge.net) which the build script expects to find under /tools/lib
but which are not attached here in the first place.

tests are compiled and run invoking > build run-unit-tests

I'd feel more than happy about comments how to improve this testing infrastructure.
