Subject Re: PROPOSAL: subdivide systests
Date Mon, 19 May 2008 01:59:30 GMT

Actually, there is another "funky" option...   I did this for JAX-WS  
tests at one point (didn't commit it) so I could guarantee the test  
ordering while trying to diagnose a failure that only occurred when  
the tests ran in a certain order.....

Create a class like:

@SuiteClasses( {
public class AegisTest {

You need to rename all the tests to NOT end it "Test" so the default  
surefire won't pick them up.  This can actually speed things up as  
surefire will fork for the entire suite of tests, not each test  
class.   (this assumes each test class does cleanup after itself fine  
which isn't true for a lot of the system tests).    It also is  
"slightly" more involved to add new test classes as you have to update  
the list in the suite.   However,  "mvn test -Dtest=AegisTest" would  
work perfectly.
