Module contains NetBeans extension to JUnit.Question (arch-overall): Describe the overall architecture. Answer:
Module contains NetBeans extension to JUnit. It provides classes and methods which allow one to verify performance, memory consumption, file output and other aspects of the IDE or applications built on the NetBeans Platform.Question (arch-usecases): Describe the main use cases of the new API. Who will use it under what circumstances? What kind of code would typically need to be written to use the module? Answer:
Tests typically extends NbTestCase.Question (arch-time): What are the time estimates of the work? Answer:
Done.Question (arch-quality): How will the quality of your code be tested and how are future regressions going to be prevented? Answer:
Used daily for testing of NetBeans. A few unite tests exists.Question (arch-where): Where one can find sources for your module? Answer:
The sources for the module are in the NetBeans Mercurial repositories.
assertGCcalls. Question (dep-non-nb): What other projects outside NetBeans does this one depend on? Answer:
JUnit.Question (dep-platform): On which platforms does your module run? Does it run in the same way on each? Answer:
Any.Question (dep-jre): Which version of JRE do you need (1.2, 1.3, 1.4, etc.)? Answer:
1.5Question (dep-jrejdk): Do you require the JDK or is the JRE enough? Answer:
Module jar for wrapper library.
modules/ext/nbjunit.jar - classes which extends JUnit.
modules/ext/nbjunit-ide.jar - ProjectSupport helper class.
Yes.Question (deploy-shared): Do you need to be installed in the shared location only, or in the user directory only, or can your module be installed anywhere? Answer:
Anywhere.Question (deploy-packages): Are packages of your module made inaccessible by not declaring them public? Answer:
No.Question (deploy-dependencies): What do other modules need to do to declare a dependency on this one, in addition to or instead of the normal module dependency declaration (e.g. tokens to require)? Answer:
Yes.Question (compat-standards): Does the module implement or define any standards? Is the implementation exact or does it deviate somehow? Answer:
No.Question (compat-version): Can your module coexist with earlier and future versions of itself? Can you correctly read all old settings? Will future versions be able to read your current settings? Can you read or politely ignore settings stored by a future version? Answer:
N/A.Question (compat-deprecation): How the introduction of your project influences functionality provided by previous version of the product? Answer:
Yes.Question (resources-layer): Does your module provide own layer? Does it create any files or folders in it? What it is trying to communicate by that and with which components? Answer:
Yes. It adds template and library.Question (resources-read): Does your module read any resources from layers? For what purpose? Answer:
No.Question (resources-mask): Does your module mask/hide/override any resources provided by other modules in their layers? Answer:
No.Question (resources-preferences): Does your module uses preferences via Preferences API? Does your module use NbPreferences or or regular JDK Preferences ? Does it read, write or both ? Does it share preferences with other modules ? If so, then why ? Answer:
By default the NbTestCase provides its own in-memory implementation of preferences. To suppress this behaviour one can use initialize own Preferences by accessing them in static initializer of the suite.
org.openide.util.Lookupor any similar technology to find any components to communicate with? Which ones? Answer:
No.Question (lookup-register): Do you register anything into lookup for other code to find? Answer:
No.Question (lookup-remove): Do you remove entries of other modules from lookup? Answer:
System.getProperty) property? On a similar note, is there something interesting that you pass to
java.util.logging.Logger? Or do you observe what others log? Answer:
NetBeans extension to JUnit uses standard JUnit preferences file to store additional information required when using advanced features of NbJUnit. The junit.properties file is a standard property file, which is stored in user's home directory (as defined in user.home system property of JVM). Recognized properties by NbJUnit are the following: nbjunit.diff.impl - name of the java class implementing org.netbeans.junit.diff.Diff inteface. This class performs 'diff' between files. In NBJunit extension is available org.netbeans.junit.diff.SimpleDiff for simple comparision (this class decides only whether compared files are equal or not, it does not provide any additional information) and org.netbeans.junit.diff.NativeDiff for comparision via native diff code (e.g. diff program on unix machines). Please note, SimpleDiff is rather trivial implementation of diff command, so it is recommended to use native diff whenever possible.
NbTestCasemethods so it is more predicatable (see Order of elements for description of the problem). The acceptable values of the property are:
branding.token. If it is provided (by Ant harness for example), it is used to call NbBundle.setBranding.
s Here's an example of junit.properties file:
nbjunit.workdir=/space/netbeans/tests/workdir nbjunit.diff.impl=org.netbeans.junit.diff.NativeDiff nbjunit.diff.impl.CmdLine=/usr/bin/diff -bw %TESTFILE% %PASSFILE%Question (exec-component): Is execution of your code influenced by any (string) property of any of your components? Answer:
No.Question (exec-ant-tasks): Do you define or register any ant tasks that other can use? Answer:
No.Question (exec-classloader): Does your code create its own class loader(s)? Answer:
No.Question (exec-reflection): Does your code use Java Reflection to execute other code? Answer:
No.Question (exec-privateaccess): Are you aware of any other parts of the system calling some of your methods by reflection? Answer:
No.Question (exec-process): Do you execute an external process from your module? How do you ensure that the result is the same on different platforms? Do you parse output? Do you depend on result code? Answer:
No.Question (exec-introspection): Does your module use any kind of runtime type information (
instanceof, work with
java.lang.Class, etc.)? Answer:
No.Question (exec-threading): What threading models, if any, does your module adhere to? How the project behaves with respect to threading? Answer:
N/A.Question (security-policy): Does your functionality require modifications to the standard policy file? Answer:

None.Question (format-dnd): Which protocols (if any) does your code understand during Drag & Drop? Answer:
None.Question (format-clipboard): Which data flavors (if any) does your code read from or insert to the clipboard (by access to clipboard on means calling methods on
