#17938 closed Bug (fixed)

Transient failure of regressiontests.servers.tests.LiveServerDatabase on oracle

When running the entire test suite against oracle xe 10g, the following failure is seen:

FAIL: test_database_writes (regressiontests.servers.tests.LiveServerDatabase)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/nate/django/trunk/tests/regressiontests/servers/", line 215, in test_database_writes
    self.assertEquals(names, ['jane', 'robert', 'emily'])
AssertionError: Lists differ: [u'emily', u'jane', u'robert'] != ['jane', 'robert', 'emily']

First differing element 0:

- [u'emily', u'jane', u'robert']
+ ['jane', 'robert', 'emily']

Strangely, this does not happen when run in isolation. Inspecting the query results just shows that Oracle is returning the results unordered. The correct thing to do then would be to use order_by
