Hi, I'm starting to convert java.io tests to the new framework and have some questions. First, when should we be calling debug() and when should we be calling verbose()? What is the standard information that should be sent to each? Is verbose() only for the harness and debug() for the tests maybe? Second, each test can call check() multiple times it seems. I'd like to be able to pass a parameter to the check(x,x) variables that is a brief description of what is being checked to allow more granularity in compiling problems. For example, when checking the values of several protected int variables, it would be nice to specifiy which ones I am checking. So I'd like to have methods check(x,x,String). Or some mechanism to provide a similiar capability. Just getting started so I'm sure there will be more. My plan is to convert one test and have you guys take a look at it to make sure I'm not going off in the complete wrong direction before I spend a bunch of time on the rest. -- Aaron M.
