Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4630) add a system property to allow testing of suspicious stuff
Date Fri, 14 Dec 2012 12:40:12 GMT


Commit Tag Bot commented on LUCENE-4630:

[branch_4x commit] Uwe Schindler

Merged revision(s) 1421818 from lucene/dev/trunk:
Revert the revert of the revert. I hope Robert Muir will followup and we can agree that this
patch is not really a good idea and we should discuss on LUCENE-4630 what to do. I know that
Mike is already beasting J9, so we would need an option to disable this AssumptionFailedEx.
Thanks in advance!

> there are times when people want to add assumptions in test to prevent confusing/false
failures in certain situations (eg: known bugs in JVM X, known incompatibilities between lucene
feature Z and filesystem Y, etc...)
> By default we want these situations to be "skiped" in tests with clear messages so that
it's clear to end users trying out releases that these tests can't be run for specific sitautions.
> But at the same time we need a way for developers to be able to try running these tests
anyway so we know if/when the underliyng problem is resolved.
> i propose we add a "tests.suspicious.shit" system property, which defaults to "false"
in the javacode, but can be set at runtime to "true"
> assumptions about things like incompatibilities with OSs, JVM vendors, JVM versions,
filesystems, etc.. can all be dependent on this system propery.
