So, I'm trying to use mauve some more and am thoroughly confused. Instead of going through the shell scripts and finding out what's going on, I'm sending this mail --- should take the same time. Please consider this user feedback. When I say "gmake KEYS=JDK1.1 check", it tells me among other things: ... FAIL: gnu.testlet.java.beans.IntrospectorTest: uncaught exception at number 1 FAIL: gnu.testlet.java.lang.Boolean.hashcode_Boolean (number 1) FAIL: gnu.testlet.java.lang.Boolean.hashcode_Boolean (number 2) ... So I want to find out what the failure is. Let's run only the IntrospectorTest, I think. I read the README file and try: gmake KEYS=java.beans.IntrospectorTest check Hmmm, it says: 0 of 0 tests failed So I try that tag file thing. I create a tag file: > cat mauve-t java.beans and use it: > gmake KEYS=t check It still says: 0 of 0 tests failed So I think maybe it's that SimpleTestHarness that you're supposed to use. I read the main function and constructor and it appears to take a directory as av and read names from stdin. It says it's the source directory, so I'm guessing it's gnu/testlet. So I try: /mauve) > java gnu.testlet.SimpleTestHarness gnu/testlet java.beans.IntrospectorTest <- I type FAIL: uncaught exception loading java.beans.IntrospectorTest: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: java/beans/IntrospectorTest java.lang.Boolean.hashcode_Boolean <- I type FAIL: uncaught exception loading java.lang.Boolean.hashcode_Boolean: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: java/lang/Boolean/hashcode_Boolean 2 of 2 tests failed Hmm, did I run the tests? This is where I give up and think mauve needs either improvement, documentation, or both. How do I get mauve to run a single test? Secondly, if it says "uncaught Exception" --- as it did for the IntrospectorTest --- to find out what exception was thrown and not caught, can I just run the test (once I know how to do it), or do I have to go in and edit the test.
