Subject [jira] Commented: (BUILDR-62) JUnit test filtering should allow custom filtering, and not test JUnit @Test annotation on class
Date Tue, 22 Apr 2008 06:25:22 GMT


Assaf Arkin commented on BUILDR-62:

Right.  #2 should be RunWith, not Test.

Running JDave with the JUnit framework will not be supported in 1.3 or future versions.  Rather,
we added more abstraction and convenience methods to support easily adding new test frameworks,
so JDave should have its own test framework.  Since it's BDD, it might be easier to start
with TestFramework::JavaBDD (buildr/java/bdd_frameworks.rb).

It's still possible to select a subset of the available test cases using include/exclude,
and these are applied uniformly across all test frameworks.:
1.  The test framework identifies all the tests is can run and provides their name
2.  The include/exclude patterns are applied to select the tests that will actually execute
3.  Integration tests are selected separately from unit tests (integration and test tasks,
4.  The resulting list is then passed back to the test framework for execution

the current 1.3 trunk (22 April 2008). In 1.2, this is very easy with Buildr::Java::JUnit::JUNIT_TESTS_PATTERN
filtering by test / spec class names. 
> Some kind of an abstraction for filtering the relevant test or spec classes is important
not only for custom test framework integration, but for custom suites in big projects. Running
a lot of tests is typically faster in a suite, and when you have different sets of tests (unit,
integration, acceptance, black-box against a deployed application, ...) you typically want
to specify which set to run. For example, the continuous integration server might only run
tests against the deployed application a couple of times a day, but unit tests all the time
for fast feedback. Different grouping methods of test frameworks are framework specific, and
rather than making Buildr support framework specific ways, it could operate on an extra abstraction
> Filtering by class name has worked well elsewhere (ant, maven, buildr 1.2), so it would
be excellent if it would be included in 1.3 as well.
