TestBrickWall.java and bricks set to Kinematic unexpected behavior

Hi folks, I was playing around with this, and changed each brick so that it was kinematic (which form my understanding means gravity no longer applies to the object).

When I fire the ball at the wall, the ball explodes as expected…but the wall/bricks did not budge, I would have expected the bricks to fly back due the ball impact (but the bricks in this case should logically continue to fly forever…based on the applied impact force).

am I missing something?

based on what I’m seeing if an object is set to kinematic…not forces can be applied to it, but other non-kinematic will be effected the kinematics, is this as expected?

Yeah, the javadoc explicitly states so :roll:
