Subject [jira] [Commented] (SUREFIRE-1206) Add SurefireProvider for JUnit 5
Date Mon, 14 Dec 2015 09:23:46 GMT


Tibor Digana commented on SUREFIRE-1206:

>>For tagging we can use Surefire's groups and ignored tests will have to be reported
in the same way as now, right?
Groups and tags seem to be compliant.

> Add SurefireProvider for JUnit 5
> --------------------------------
>                 Key: SUREFIRE-1206
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Surefire
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>            Reporter: Marc Philipp
>             Fix For: Backlog
> As you probably know, the JUnit team is currently working on a new major version, codenamed
JUnit Lambda. We are still in a very early prototype/alpha phase but nevertheless wanted to
reach out to you regarding future support for JUnit 5 in Maven Surefire.
> h4. The prototype
> We have even gone so far as to create our own SurefireProvider for the prototype we've
release a couple of weeks ago:
It's obviously very basic and only supports the most common use case of running all test classes
in a module. This was merely meant as a proof of concept. Moreover, we do not plan to release
and maintain our own SurefireProvider in the long run. That's why I'm opening this issue so
we start to talk about it and then, hopefully, start collaborating on it.
> h4. Things the JUnit team has decided
> - JUnit 5 will require a JDK 8 runtime
> - JUnit 5 will be able to run JUnit 4 and JUnit 3 tests if the right JARs happen to be
on the classpath.
> h4. Possible next steps
> We would love if you could take a look at our current build tool/IDE facing API if you
have the time. Please feel free to ask any question that might come up.
> We are currently working on the first alpha. Our goal is to have a stable build tool/IDE
facing API by then but as sooner as you provide feedback the better.
