|Re: [jakarta.ee-spec] Question about removing of TCK tests like security manager tests...|
Hi Scott,Thanks for reaching out to me! My concern is that we need to understand the SecurityManager tests. I might be wrong but I assume these tests use SecurityManager apis to test other functionalities. If we delete them, would the functionalities live without accompanied tests?
First, I apologize for raising this on this mailing list, I
corrected my address book entry for you (I intended to just follow
up with you privately to better understand your point).
If for example, we removed the
that would remove dedicated testing of the combination of
SecurityManager with Servlet. But the answer to your question
really varies depending on how the test is written.
Some other tests combine testing of multiple Java SE technologies
within the same test source that also tests multiple Jakarta EE
technologies (typically targeting a base Jakarta EE technology but
also involving other Jakarta EE technologies).
Would Java 17 make SecurityManger completely obsolete?
No, Java SE 17 does not make the SecurityManager obsolete, it
only marks it as deprecated (for removal in a future Java SE
Basically removing the security manager apis does not make any differences.
The SecurityManager apis are not removed in Java SE 17.

Or is it more that you just don't want to lose any security related tests?

I would like to better understand why you said that we cannot remove Java Security Manager tests from the TCK without adding replacement tests?
I am thinking that if we remove Java Security Manager TCK tests for Jakarta EE 10 and there is a new way in later Java SE versions that standardizes how equivalent security testing could be done in a TCK, that someone could contribute changes to then add new security TCK tests but that is not likely to happen for the EE 10 release.
