Flavio Paiva Junqueira commented on ZOOKEEPER-505:

Great catch, Utkarsh! I noticed this problem a while ago in the ReadWrite tests 
and fixed by changing the catch blocks to the following:

catch (BKException e) {
      LOG.error("Test failed", e);
      fail("Test failed due to BookKeeper exception");

Clearly we forgot to implement the change in all places. Also, we shouldn't 
have calls to printStackTrace. Now I wonder if it is best to remove the catch 
block as you propose or to catch and fail as I propose above. I don't know the 
exact semantics of junit with respect to exceptions, but recently I've seen a 
case that a test was throwing an exception and not catching it, and was still

> There is a big try-catch block sitting in the test case that catches all

> Another problem is that the same ControlObject is used for synchronization 
> throughout. Since we already have the problem of callbacks being called 
> multiple times (ZOOKEEPER-502), notify() on the control object is called too 
> many times, resulting in the unit test not waiting for certain callbacks.
> Thus the test never waits for the asyncOpenLedger() to finish, and hence 
> still succeeds. I believe asyncOpenLedger() has never worked right.
