Subject [jira] Commented: (JAMES-427) [PATCH] Introduce Unit Testing
Date Thu, 29 Dec 2005 10:47:04 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-427?page=comments#action_12361363 ] 

Stefano Bagnara commented on JAMES-427:
---------------------------------------

junit is licensed under the CPL
ristretto is licensed under the MPL/GPL/LGPL triple license.

Does anyone know wether we can add them to our james repository or not?

If not, what should we do?

I really like this effort to start testing james.

> 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.
