Subject Re: [Ant Java Source] How to get some build.xml params?
Date Sat, 09 Feb 2008 22:05:48 GMT

Thank You for the advice, I'll do it :working: :-)

The "problem" is that I'd like to print out additional test cases info into
the final Junit report, something like description,  input data&format and
more but I haven't found a solution to do it directly from the JUnit

So now I accompained all test case methods with an optional wired
description built upon a custom annotation class tag.
Something to use later during JUnit report generation for printing out some
aggregated data used for testing (input data and format, objectives and
more). A more sophiticated way to do this, which I'd like to do, would be to
getting this info directly from test method associated javadoc taglet.

This sample report shows what I am working on:

Pratically I would like that JUnit report generator was unaware of specific
might only process this info as an additional tag to nest into  for later
XSLT processing on customized report generator stylesheet. For this I
believe that I need a way to pass additional params from build.xml ...
