I agree that we should simplify the tests.

I think it is worth to remove the suites and run the tests directly.
This also saves the extra step to add new test classes to a suite.

I'm also ok with removing the integration profiles from all the the
test modules.

What we should consider is to create a profile in the apacheds parent
project and to activate all the integration test modules only when
activating that profile. This would speed up the build for people that
only want to checkout and run the trunk. Developers still need to
activate the profile before a commit. (Pierre-Arnaud just recently
changed the studio build this way and moved all long-running modules
to an extra profile)

Or, to go a step further, to create a sub-project "integration-tests"
and to move all the test modules to that sub-project. IMO this makes
sense because currently the integration test for the LDAP API is also
included in the apacheds sub-project.

Kind Regards,
