Subject RE: Artima SuiteRunner Task
Date Wed, 26 Mar 2003 16:02:30 GMT
That said (by Erik and myself), if SuiteRunner becomes popular enough (like
JUnit), and even though it's an 'external' task, there would be a good
possibility that it could be incorporated in ant-optional.jar, simply to
help and evangelize Unit Testing in general, which is a  best practice.

That said (one more ;-), if Ant ever comes up with an easier way to
integrate third party tasks (and their dependencies) using an AntLib
mechanism, maybe it would not make it to Ant, just because it would be so
easy to integrate anyhow.

I hope this helps, --DD

Thanks Dominique,

I wasn't aware of that policy regarding 'external' tasks (since I only
started subscribing recently). I'll ask Artima.com to see if their
interested. :)

Thanks again,
Adam

Sorry, I didn't mean at all to put down your contribution. I was more asking
an off topic question about SuiteRunner. My personal opinion on SuiteRunner
is not binding in any way the Ant community at large, or the committers ;-)

As a note, past comments indicate that Task should ideally live within the
tool they Ant-enable (and depend on), so your contribution maybe should also
be made (or instead) to the Artima.com SuiteRunner community. --DD

Hi Dominique,

I would like to know what other people think too.

If at the end of the day, the developers of Ant do not wish to use the code
I have written, that is fine with me. I only want to contribute to the
development of Ant - which I am really fond of. As does Leigh Ishikawa. Any
advice on that matter?

Thanks,
Adam

Could someone please explain me what SuiteRunner brings to the table that
JUnit doesn't???? I've looked at it quite a bit, and maybe beside better
reporting, I don't see anything compelling about it compared to JUnit, and
even loose the built-in assert methods of TestCase (thru Assert)...

I'd be interested in knowing what other see in it. Thanks, --DD

Subject: Artima SuiteRunner Task

Hi All,

(Please forgive my newbie-ness).

I have developed an Ant Task for the Artima SuiteRunner and I'd like to
submit it. Perhaps a Committer might a respond directly and I'll e-mail them
a zip file containing the code? (Didn't want to send a zip file to a few
hundred people...!)

Thanks,
