Running unit tests on the mac fails because PATH is different from Terminal PATH

Bug Description

Running unit tests on Eclipse on the mac fails because PATH is different from the Terminal PATH. Is there a better way of calculating the PATH? Should we put in a copy of bzr itself as part of the test resources and execute it if Python is available? (kinda yucky)

Can it be executed in Jython?

Somehow call terminal and get the PATH from there? like bash -c 'which bzr'

The implementation I did was pretty yucky but it seems to move the thing forward so now it will find the executable on the Mac.

  final Process whichProcess = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(
    new String[] { System.getenv("SHELL"), "-lc", "which bzr" });
  final BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(
  final String pathLine = reader.readLine();

Please note that this does not mean that the JUnits passed.

I found that I needed the bzr-xmloutput plugin installed which I didn't and that made me go forward a bit more. Now I got some weird error with the following stack trace. Not sure what to make of it.

It appears to be because I am using an older version of bzr-xmloutput 0.8.4 the latest is 0.8.6 which fixes bug #434998. Since I am using the MacPorts distribution it only has up to version 0.8.4 until some creates and updates the the portfile

Updated to 0.8.6. Fixes a lot of the problems now, but I am still getting some test errors in BazaarClientTest and XMLRPCCommandRunnerTest.

Please try using the latest trunk of bzr-xmloutput (the version string is which fixes some issues with newer bzr versions.
