Subject Tests that take a long time to execute
Date Thu, 22 May 2008 11:45:44 GMT
Hi Chaps,


We have a set of JUnit tests that we run in 3 different scenarios -


1)       During development i.e. from Eclipse or Ant etc


2)       As part of building a release of our application (Ant)


3)       From the web-applicaton itself, a user clicks a button on a
webpage (Using a custom driver that simply using reflection run's each
method whose name starts "test" and just records if any of them fails
and shows an overall success of failure message)



The Problem - for scenario 3, this used to work fine as the tests
completed fairly quickly, but now after massive expansion of the tests,
these tests can take up to 30 minutes to complete. In the current
scenario the user will get a "HTTP Request timed out" error like message
before the tests complete.


I am wondering if there is a solution in to this in the Cactus project
some how?


Otherwise I envisaged creating some sort of Servlet that runs the JUnit
tests and acts as a datasource to an AJAX enabled webpage that polls the
Servlet for status and which tests have passed or failed and updates




Thanks Adam
