  1. Travis CI away here:
  2. wow....goot catch, but then makes me wonder should we add some unittests for this class? I checked tests/python/pants_test/backend, it's very very sparse there...
    or are this class's functionalities covered in some other outer classes' integration tests?
    what's our policies around writing unittests and IT tests? is UT mandatory?
    1. This JarTaskTest caught the bug.  Agreed that it would be good to have target tests too though for any test validating inputs like this.  That said - I'd like to defer since this RB does add coverage.
    2. To be clear, the unit test passes both premain and agent_class and the old logic always raised TargetDefinitionException in that case.  So I needed to fix to get this test working.
    3. no, i'm not suggesting for this RB to add that. It can be deferred as some of our hackweek/tech debt projects. But I want to get a clarification on how we should move forward dealing with addition of new code.
    4. Oh - also - tests do not mirror src for the backends.  We used to have {src,tests}/.../{targets,tasks}.  Although in the src tree these got moved to backends/* in the tests tree they did not.  That needs to be cleaned up at some point for discoverability of tests.
    5. Thanks for pushing - isolated test and fix here:
      I may merge this RB to master ahead of that RB, but I'll rebase adjust whoever wins since they both have the same JavaAgent fix.
  1. Thanks Jin - submitted @
