Subject Unit tests for known issues
Date Fri, 07 Jul 2006 10:26:06 GMT

Question to any JUnit gurus out there: Is there a standard way or a
best practice for creating unit tests for known issues for which no
immediate fix is expected? There are currently a few such tests in the
Jackrabbit test suite, but because they just report as "FAILED", it is
difficult to see whether the failures were caused by a recent change
or if they are just known issues.

I think it is very valuable to have those known issue tests included
in the test suite, but it would make more sense if they'd be reported
as TODOs or just skipped unless explicitly asked for.

The TODO: blocks in Perl's Test::More handle this very nicely, but I
don't know of any similar feature in JUnit except explicitly skipping
the tests based on a system property setting.
