Subject [jira] Created: (BUILDR-561) Test framework should provide a forkMode option
Date Thu, 09 Dec 2010 13:11:03 GMT
Test framework should provide a forkMode option

                 Key: BUILDR-561
             Project: Buildr
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Test frameworks
            Reporter: Tammo van Lessen
             Fix For: Wish List

When running large builds with complex test cases (like integration tests), it is often required
to adjust the fork mode. Maven's surefire plugin for instance knows 3 fork modes: "never",
"once", "always".

It would be great to support these 3 modes as first class citizen. If a fork mode is not supported
by buildr a meaningful error can be thrown. E.g. currently buildr's testng wrapper only supports

In general it would be great if test wrappers could support all modes and, if "always" is
not supported directly by the framework, emulate the behavior. This might be tricky as reports
need to be merged if test are run one-by-one.
