Re: Mauve coding on Windows
No, I understand. You want to contribute to GNU Classpath project by
writing new Mauve tests. But just for this you do not need to run all
EXISTING Mauve tests. The existing tests are used to ensure that the new
changes in GNU Classpath library itself do not introduce regressions,
that nothing is spoiled while improving another part. You can write and
run your tests on Sun's jre even without trying to build Classpath
itself. After you commit them to CVS, others will run them on Classpath
and use the results of your tests..
Of course, it is worthwhile to learn how to to run a complete Mauve test
set, and how to build Classpath, and join the main project developing
and so on. All this would be great from your side, but it takes time and
may not be easy under Windows. The new Mauve tests are very important
for us; our coverage is still not sufficient. There are still several
important packages where no single class is covered. You told me you
want to join us by writing new Mauve tests, I explained how to set up
the developing platform in the fastest possible way.

I think you misunderstood; I actually intend to write tests for GNU

As your purpose is to just write some new tests and not to test GNU

thinking to delete all tests.
I would like to write some test cases for the GNU classpath project.
I fetched Mauve from CVS (using eclipse "create project from cvs")
but I ran into a whole bunch of errors:
I think these errors are related to me running Windows 2000 and
windows does not allow a file called "Color" and a dir called "color".
Someone on IRC said that there is atleast one other guy that uses
Windows for Mauve development (Jeroen?). If anyone can provide
information how I can setup a proper Mauve-compatible dev
environment on Windows please drop me a line.
I also have another question, how do I know what test cases are
missing and needs to be implemented?
