Description David Konecny 2004-03-28 18:00:15 UTC
Subject says all.
Comment 1 Tomas Pavek 2004-05-14 13:55:12 UTC
The goal is actually not to bundle junit at all - just use some
"standard" or 3rd party junit package distr (RPM, etc) - which would
contain also the sources. But this won't be done for NB 4.0 as there
does not seem to be a suitable package available. And we also won't
add the sources for the bundled junit in NB 4.0.
Otherwise having sources for junit is quite useful I think.
Comment 2 Tomas Pavek 2004-05-14 13:59:08 UTC
BTW why is this "buildsys" related issue?
Comment 3 David Konecny 2004-05-17 09:41:36 UTC
Buildsys changed way how the libraries are defined. The JUnit J2SE
library was defined, but not all its capabilities were utilized, i.e.
the sources were not provided.

If you agree that it is useful, why do you do not want to provide
them? Isn't it a matter of adding a jar? Or are there some licencing
Comment 4 Marian Petras 2008-11-25 19:42:29 UTC
This issue has been re-evaluated during evaluation of issues #129619 ("Update to JUnit 4.5") and #108952 ("Add JUnit
sources to IDE to enhance debugging").

The request for addition of JUnit sources is now tracked in issue #108952, so I am closing this issue (41444) as a
duplicate of that one (108952).
