Ant Junit Task mishandles Suites
Maybe I’m missing something, but the Ant Junit task doesn’t
seem to handle Suites well. What I mean is that the formatters supplied with the base Junit
task, when outputting information about a suite, don’t spit out details about the class that a
test was in. So
For instance if I had two tests, one in TestClass1 and another in TestClass2 named testMyMethod() and run from the suite AllTests, the output from
The “work around” is to use the
<fileset includes=“/*.class" excludes="/AllTests.class” />
However, this runs slower than using test suites.
I did see that in 1.6.2 there will be a new option to fork a single JVM instead of one for each class, but even then this could run faster through test suites.
So for now I have added a vote to bug #24106. I encourage anyone else that is annoyed by this to do the same!
