Subject Re: CamelTestSupport for junit 4 (re)starting context per class instead of per method
Date Fri, 05 Mar 2010 11:34:40 GMT
Sure you can get strange behaviour in some cases but I think if the 
Developer of the test knows that his context is per class it should be ok.
I am not proposing to change the default as current tests sometimes will 
rely on running isolated. I rather propose to write new tests
with one context per class where possible and of course to rewrite old 
tests over time.

While you are right that per method will avoid most side effects I think 
the test time could be the more important argument. Currently the
whole camel build takes way tool long and perhaps this is one way to 
bring the time down.
