[jira] [Commented] (GROOVY-6792) ClassFormatError if a method has dots within its name

JIRA jira@apache.org

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GROOVY-6792?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15924055#comment-15924055 ]

Paul King commented on GROOVY-6792:

This was found to break existing tests which included some of those special characters in the test names. My preliminary assessment is as follows:
Spock auto removes such names, so it isn't applicable to this discussion but non-spock tests could have those symbols when run using the gradle test runner - but not directly with groovy/groovyConsole. When I get time I'll do a more thorough assessment but for now the extra naming check is only turned on using a system property: groovy.compiler.strictNames. This system property is experimental and currently defaults to false (off = status quo). A future version of Groovy may change this system property to default to true or may re-enable the extra check all the time if some other workaround is found.
