Unfortunately, this isn't terribly correct :-) The purpose of the
JUnit migration tool is to automatically add annotations to an
existing source, and is independent from the test harness itself.
TestNG is also quite famous, and indeed, a lot of what's available in
JUnit4 was based on ideas from TestNG. It's also been around since
August 2004, so it's had almost a couple of years out in the field
(and as the download page [1] shows, it's pretty active). There's also
plugins for any build system you care to name (ant, maven, Eclipse,
IntelliJ) and it's pretty widely adopted in certain areas.

In short, not a terribly common-sense post :-)

Alex.
