Subject Re: JDO TCK TestRunner ideas
Date Wed, 25 May 2005 00:09:07 GMT
Hi, Michael,

I am reviewing the ideas we discussed for controlling test execution for 
multiple configurations.  One goal we have is that all allowed 
combinations of tests, mapping files, test data, identity settings, ... 
can be run with a single maven command.  If I understand correctly, you 
pictured that the user would select a configuration file by setting it 
in project.properties and only that one configuration (which might 
include many tests, mappings, etc.) would be run by maven.  Is this 
correct?  Or do you see a way for maven to run a set of configuration 
files on one invocation?
