The current version of jUnit in Sakai is 3.8.1. Please upgrade to 4.7

This brings valuable readable methods with it, like assertThat():


assertThat(0, is(1)); // fails:
// failure message:
// expected: is <1>
// got value: <0>
assertThat(0, is(not(1))) // passes

assertThat("Help! Integers don't work", 0, is(1)); // fails:
// failure message:
// Help! Integers don't work
// expected: is <1>
// got value: <0>
assertThat("Zero is one", 0, is(not(1))) // passes

Just upping the version in the root pom.xml to 4.7 creates 3 unit test failures.

If you'd like this updated in kernel, please attach a patch that has the pom.xml change and whatever changes are required to resolve the test failures.

a note that this will be required to go the spring 3

I wonder of there is a Jira out there for an upgrade to Spring 3.0 Since Migration to Tomcat 6.x seems to be on its way

Comment by David Horwitz [ 31-Jul-2010 ]

At least some of the failures are due to Class names with Test in them that aren't unit tests (their mock objects)

see KNL-535 - upgraded to junit 4.8.2
