In general, I agree with Stephen that the tests should be testing an
algorithm against facts.
Embedding an algorithm in the test increases the risk that the test will
just replicate the
implementation code and therefor not be much of a test.
Though in this case, the specification of aligned day of week is of a
If the test were to independently compute the correct answer, it would
be valid as a 'tck' test.
Since the Hijrah calendar is data driven, the tests should be in
Tests in java/time/tck/... should correspond directly to specified
In this case, the algorithm is specified but the test is data dependent.
(Perhaps a gray area).
