While investigating the junit errors
occuring on the build machine(linux), we discovered we were relying on
IResource.getLocalTimestamp(), to help
track for modifications....
It turns out this is not a reliable
method, because of timing differences of each OS - you can't rely on this
to change as the file changes.
always be used, once we switched to this api, all junits passed on linux.....
We will drop these changes to the build.
We also did a search to see other uses
of this method, and turned up a couple in j2ee and server component areas...
We opened this defect: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=160718
I recommend doing a quick search on
your code prevent failures in the future.
