Subject Re: -Dtests.iters not working?
Date Wed, 16 May 2012 14:01:43 GMT
Thanks for the explanation.

The cmd-line I used is:

ant test -Dtestcase=TestDirectoryTaxonomyWriter
-Dtestmethod=testConcurrency -Dtests.iters=100

I see in your example that you use -Dtests.method, and I tried that in
eclipse and it worked with -Dtests.iters. I wonder why it didn't work from
cmd-line though, as testmethod is an alias to tests.method.

Isn't there a way to make running a single test-method still runnable with
-Dtests.iters? This is something that used to work, how come that we lost

I think we need to be more careful in all the test-framework changes, by
ensuring that at least what used to work doesn't stop working. And also try
to avoid unnecessary changes like the tests.iter rename - it's something
that was working and we got used to it, why change?

Now I need to adapt the way I run tests in eclipse, by never running a
single test-method, but always running classes with -Dtests.method. If this
is something that you can fix, I'd appreciate if you can try. We don't need
to adopt every bit of JUnit, only the one that makes our life easier.

Is tests.iter(s).min back working, or is it still disabled? This was a very
useful feature too.
