- Subject: Intel's AWT/Swing test suite
Last week Intel posted their AWT/Swing test suite at the Harmony project site. I've
been taking a look at it, to see what value there is in it for GNU Classpath...and,
in spite of a lot overlap with Mauve, there are many new tests in there that are
useful to us.
Unfortunately they decided to write the tests in the java.awt.* and javax.swing.*
namespace, which makes it awkward to run the tests, both against Sun's reference
implementation (to verify the tests) and against GNU Classpath (to find bugs in our
implementation). However, it has been relatively straightforward (though tedious)
to refactor the tests to move the tests into their own namespace (I used
test.java.awt.* and test.javax.swing.*).
You can find a jar file containing both the (JUnit-based) tests and corresponding
source code (for around 2,600 tests so far) here:
To run the tests, use the following command line:
jamvm -classpath .:lib/junit.jar junit.textui.TestRunner test.java.awt.PackageTestSuite
...replacing the class name with the name of any test class, or the package level
There is also a test suite that will run all tests:
test.AWTSwingTestSuite (runs all tests)
There are still many tests that I haven't extracted from javax.swing.*,
javax.swing.plaf.basic.*, javax.swing.plaf.metal.* and javax.swing.text.*. I'll
post a revised test jar file when I've completed those.
