Subject RE: Junit test fails in ant but not in Eclipse
Date Wed, 07 Mar 2007 14:35:34 GMT
These things almost always come down to classpath but it's hard to tell
without more info.   In particular I found that Java 1.3 and 1.4 are
missing a lot of libs needed to run junit, but Java 1.5 already comes
with everything.

When you say you ran it in Eclipse, did you simply select "run as junit"
or did you launch the Ant script from Eclipse?
When you say you ran it in Ant, did you launch the Ant script from
Eclipse, or did you run it by hand on the command line?
Are you launching Eclipse with the same VM that you see when you type
"java -version" at your command line?

Subject: Junit test fails in ant but not in Eclipse


I run a junit test ( junit 3.8.1 in both) in Eclipse it works just fine.
Then I run the test in Ant using:

<target  name="test:test" depends="test:postcompile" description="run
all tests">
  <junit showoutput="yes" printsummary="on"  haltonfailure="no"
fork="on" failureproperty="junit_test_failed" forkmode="perBatch">
    <jvmarg value="-Xmx756M" />
value="-Demma.coverage.out.file=${coverage.dir}/coverage.emma" /> 
    <jvmarg value="-Demma.coverage.out.merge=true" /> 
     <pathelement location="${out.instr.dir}"/>
     <pathelement location="${test.classes.dir}"/>
     <pathelement location="${classes.dir}"/>
     <path refid="test.classpath"/>
     <path refid="emma.lib" />
   <!--<formatter type="brief" usefile="true"/>-->
   <formatter type="xml" usefile="true"/>
    <batchtest todir="${coverage.dir}">
     <fileset dir="${test.classes.dir}">
      <!--<include name="**/TestItAllCreate*"/>-->
      <!--<include name="**/TestRecover*"/>-->
      <include name="**/TestItAll.class"/>
      <exclude name="**/alarm/tb/sut/*Test.class"/>
      <include name="**/sut/*Test.class"/>
      <exclude name="**/mock/**"/>

The test fails with an NullPointerException.

How are junit tests executed in ant?

Anyone knows if the jvm is restarted per suite or something. Since there
must be differences in what objects are still in the environment.
All ideas and hints are greatly appreciated!
