Subject [jira] Updated: (SUREFIRE-726) Test list preprocessor support for tests to be run
Date Wed, 22 Jun 2011 13:58:51 GMT


Kristian Rosenvold updated SUREFIRE-726:

    Fix Version/s: 3.0

> Test list preprocessor support for tests to be run
> --------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: SUREFIRE-726
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Surefire
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 2.9
>            Reporter: Janmejay Singh
>             Fix For: 3.0
>         Attachments: 0001-Adds-test-list-preprocessor-support-which-loads-an-o.patch,
0002-Integration-test-for-preprocessor.-2-modules-one-pro.patch, 0003-exposed-testPreprocessor-configuration-parameter-as-.patch,
> This exposes an interface(named TestListPreprocessor, which has a method named preprocessTestClasses)
that can be implemented by a user and injected into surefire plugin configuration to have
it used for preprocessing list of tests to be run. Given the original test list, user's preprocessing
algorithm can choose to prune or reorder the list and return it back from TestListPreprocessor#preprocessTestClasses,
which is then used as the list of tests to be executed.
> The patches attached expose a configuration element named "testPreprocessor" the default
value of which is "none". User can choose to set it to a value matching the format "<fully-qualified-class-name>[<group-id>:<artifact-id>:<version>]"
and have the class loaded and called with list of tests to be run. The list of tests returned
by the call is then considered for execution.
> Patch description:
> The feature is done in 2 patches. Description follows:
> 0001-Adds-test-list-preprocessor-support-which-loads-an-o.patch
> This patch actually adds the feature and unit tests. It adds the interface, an abstraction
that encapsulates aforementioned configuration, booter serialization/deserialization, directory-scanner
changes etc. The changes have effect in both forked and in-process execution mode.
> 0002-Integration-test-for-preprocessor.-2-modules-one-pro.patch
> This patch adds an integration test for preprocessor feature. The integration test uses
a 2 module setup, where the first module implements the TestListPreprocessor interface which
selects only even indexed test classes from the list passed in. The second module(which depends
on first) uses the artifact from first and uses the following configuration:
> --------------------
> <configuration>
>   <testPreprocessor>test.preprocessor.EvenTestOnlyPreprocessor[org.apache.maven.plugins.surefire:preprocessor-impl:1.0-SNAPSHOT]</testPreprocessor>
> </configuration>
> --------------------
> The test then asserts that only 2(0th and 2nd) of the 4 test classes the second module
has are executed.
> The patches are created on a git-svn clone using format-patch, please use 'patch -p1
< 0001-Adds...'(while in the trunk directory) to apply the patches on svn repository. If
using git-svn, git-am can be directly be invoked.
> The patches are done over
(trunk HEAD) so should apply cleanly on any recent enough revision.
