Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2609) Generate jar containing test classes.
Date Thu, 27 Jan 2011 11:17:45 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-2609:

bq. I don't think this should hold us back when maintaining tests. It's like "ant eclipse/idea/maven"
- not too many guarantees besides "we're gonna do the best we can to maintain it" (it being
the .jar, not tests).

except its called from 'ant package', so I will see 'BUILD FAILED' if i refactor something
that breaks this (lets say I split up LuceneTestCase, etc).

Furthermore, take an example where i add something to LuceneTestCase, where it reads data
from a 10MB file, or something that breaks this design.
If my idea is good for tests, it should be committed, and not "reconsidered because of test.jar
This example is a totally ridiculous/absurd/extreme one: but there are also cases not-so-extreme.

I think its vital that its easy for us to be able to refactor tests with wreckless abandon
with only three goals in mind:
# Test Coverage
# Test Coverage
# Test Coverage

I am getting worried that src/test starts getting held to a "higher standard" here, when its
a tool to ensure test coverage.
I agree when possible, we should try to keep the code quality high in src/test, but this is
really just completely optional.

It would be helpful to build a jar of these classes and publish them as a maven dependency.
