Subject Resurrecting the subsequent tests
Date Tue, 09 Aug 2016 16:21:43 GMT

Now that the buildbots work, and we are planning to start with releases
again, it would be nice to have a good set of tests to run against
releases, and running them against nightly builds wouldn't hurt either.

Our unit tests do run during the build and pass, but they cover very
little. Sady, even the subsequent tests ("OOO_SUBSEQUENT_TESTS=1 build" in
a module) fail badly.

Firstly all recent JUnit versions need Hamcrest at run-time, or they throw
ClassNotFoundException. As of r1755627 which I committed a few minutes ago,
this can be specified in --with-hamcrest-core, and trying "./configure
--with-junit" without it will fail. The versions you'll need are JUnit >=
4.11 and Hamcrest = 1.3. It's currently fixed in gbuild modules only.

Next we have the widely used but missing
org.openoffice.test.OfficeConnection class, which was mysteriously deleted
by liuzhe in r1378870:
   D /incubator/ooo/trunk/main/test/source
possibly by accident as the commit message is "Updates for Enabling Daily
Testing". This was in test.jar which is still a widely listed dependency.
It is not easy to undelete that directory as "main/test/" was later moved
to just "test/" and repurposed for QA tests. Should we rather resurrect the
old main/test/source in another module, possibly qadevOOo?

The paths to the OpenOffice instance to test are also outdated, but that's
easy to fix.
