Subject run junit tests in a certain order
Date Wed, 26 Nov 2003 00:49:59 GMT

I'm sure I'm not the first one having this problem but can't find anything on 

I would like to be able to run some JUnit tests in a certain order, e.g., 
starting from the most basic ones.  There doesn't seem to be a perfect way to 
do this using the <junit> task.  <batchtest> takes a fileset, so the order of

the test files is basically determined by File.listFile(), which returns files 
in an OS-specific order.

For a workaround, I wrote a master test suite, in which I read from a file 
that has the list of test files in the order I want them to run.  I then run 
it using <test>.  Now everything works fine as far as order enforcement is 
concerned - but all the test methods are listed under the master test suite 
class in the report!  So if I have two test methods from different classes 
with the same name, I wouldn't be able to tell which is which.

Other options include hardcoding the order into build.xml, or hack the source 
code for <batchtest> to take a file list.  Neither of those paths smells like 
a pleasant solution, though.

Any hint would be appreciated.
