Subject Re: [antunit] doco error WAS @Before/AfterClass analogues
Date Tue, 03 Oct 2006 17:00:16 GMT
The AntUnit documentation says:

"Each test target is run in a fresh Ant project; i.e.
each test target has a fresh set of properties and
references."  But if I have test targets:

  <target name="testFoo">
    <property name="foo" value="foo" />
    <au:assertTrue message="$${foo}=${foo}">
      <equals arg1="${foo}" arg2="foo" />
    </au:assertTrue>
  </target>

  <target name="testBar">
    <property name="foo" value="bar" />
    <au:assertTrue message="$${foo}=${foo}">
      <equals arg1="${foo}" arg2="bar" />
    </au:assertTrue>
  </target>

one will fail, as I would expect given that the
AntUnit code uses a single Project instance to run all
targets.

The fun part: if we change the behavior to suit the
documentation, the utility of beforeTests/afterTests
is pretty much reduced to filesystem artifacts.  I
would choose to correct the documentation to describe
the actual behavior, and see if we can't get scoped
properties working (minus the memory leaks) for Ant
1.7.1-1.8 , to alleviate the discomfort of having to
choose new properties for every test (see the apply
testcase in core).

Thoughts?
