Re: Another unused import statement report is out...

 assertTrue(Whoa, doSomething returned a non-Fred type!, doSomething()
 instanceof Fred);

When the test fails, you don't have a lot of information (like the class
returned by doSomething) to debug your code.

Using JUnit-addons, you would code your assertion:

   ObjectAssert.assertInstanceOf(Fred, doSomething());

The error message will be something like:

  expected instance of class:Fred but was of class WHATEVER

at least you have something to start your debug session.

RE: Another unused import statement report is out...

2003-03-03 Thread Vladimir R. Bossicard
 I still don't understand what the hubub about unused imports is about.

The goal is not really to check for unused imports (it's a nice-to-have) but
IMO to regularly (every night?) use a tool to check the quality of the code.  If
you care about the details (like unused imports), chances are that you care
about more important things (like tests, unused variables, unused methods...).

Once all the projects have discovered PMD (or another similar tool) and that the
unused imports are fixed, we can report other (more interesting) things like
unused variables, unused private methods, use interfaces in signatures, define
at least one constructor... This will really increase the quality/readability of
the code.

The unused imports stuff is just the beginning, not the end.

My 2 cents

Re: [PMC VOTE] Gump subproject

Per previous discussion, it seems that there is wide agreement that the 
gump code, stylesheets, and data should be updatable by every committer.

Apache.  XML-Xindice would also like to have a wiki documentation

Re: Due to popular demand, the bad imports report has been updated...

2002-12-10 Thread Vladimir R. Bossicard
Note that in two weeks the percentage dropped from 1.01% to .93%.  At
this rate, we'll soon have no bad imports.


I know that a lot of us don't like IDEs but Eclipse or IntelliJ will fix
this problem in 2 minutes.  Add 5 minutes for the commits and we are done!

PMD http://pmd.sf.net is maintained by Tom (Jakarta committers) and
Jakarta/xml is a fabulous testbed for his application.  I'm sure that we
can give him a lot of valuable feedback to improve this product and our 
code at the same time.

it is for free Mr.Colombo Holmez :)
why not?!! ;)


There are other free email accounts (like yahoo! - running on FreeBSD)

Don't you think that there is a correlation between the number of 
msn.com users and how much M$ charges for ads on its msn.com website, 
and reselling your address so that you can receive more spam ?

Don't you think it's _helping_ M$?

If you don't like M$, don't use their products.  Even if they are free. 
 M$ never gives things for free anyway.

Re: Unused imports compose only about 1% of the Jakarta source code....

2002-11-07 Thread Vladimir R. Bossicard
...which is pretty good.  563K LOC, 5300 unused imports.  Here are the
details:


Since every other tool (Eclipse, IntelliJ) can fix this automatically 
(and within minutes) I think that the 0,01% an be easily achievable.

Since some people use this metric to judge the quality of a code (you 
can argue if it makes sense or not) it's time to invest some time to 
automatically fix this!

but these are actually pretty good!  I forwarded them

Time to have a gump-like Maven based PMD website for the Apache projects?
