--------------------------------------

             Summary: Add custom JUnit4 test runner with configurable timeout
                 Key: HADOOP-9330
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9330
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Test
          Components: test
            Reporter: Steve Loughran


HADOOP-9112 has added a requirement for all new test methods to declare a timeout, so that
jenkins/maven builds will have better information on a timeout.

Hard coding timeouts into tests is dangerous as it will generate spurious failures on slower
machines/networks and when debugging a test.

I propose providing a custom JUnit4 test runner that test cases can declare as their test
runner; this can provide timeouts specified at run-time, rather than in-source.
