Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2609) Generate jar containing test classes.
Date Thu, 27 Jan 2011 11:47:43 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-2609:

While agree with the "Build Failed" notion in general, I often think that it's a bit short
sighted in that we make something marginally less annoying for us the committers (really,
is it that hard to fix?) and much harder for our users b/c they have to go re-invent the wheel.
Not everyone is an expert. We have to balance those two. I think instead of putting up roadblocks
on principal to these kinds of things, we need to figure out ways to automate them and validate
them so that it is hard to break.

Hard to break what? I dont think we should have to jump through hoops to improve tests...
I guess where we disagree here is that I don't think tests are for end users, they are for
I don't think there is a balance here at all, its 100% tipped in favor of our test coverage.

If we can jar all them up easily, like this original patch (which won't slow down development
at all,
since it will just compile all of them, no additional maintenance cost), then thats great
if someone
can make use of them...

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