It would be good to create a bug (or ensure there is an existing bug)
for any tests that you add to the list.
I tried to duplicate this without success. Is the test directory on a
SAMBA drive when it fails?
The older NIO test uses a fixed port which is problematic when tests run
in parallel. One of these days/weeks I will fix all these issues (they
manifest in various forms including hangs during initialization, or
address already in use errors).
This is an important test and I'd like to track down the reason it
failed for you rather than excluding it.
Over Martin's dead body :-)
Excluding this test will eliminate almost all test coverage of
AsynchronousSocketChannel so I don't think we should exclude it. I see
that the issue is a connection to a non-existent host is failing
immediately whereas the test expects it to timeout. I'll fix the test to
handle this case in b79.
As Windows 2000 Pro was EOL'ed eons ago we didn't put any effort into
the asynchronous I/O implementation to support that edition (it needs
Windows XP or newer). Can you just exclude this with windows-5.0 rather
than generic-all so that it continues to run on other platforms?
This test does take a long time on Windows. I'd be interested to see the
log as the right solution might be to increase the timeout or else just
exclude it on windows-5.0 (not generic-all as the test provides
