I would like to be able to have Eclipse run scheduled (overnight) tests on my projects.|
This may sound like a wacky idea, but let me give some background:
Like many people, I have Eclipse running continually on my development system. Apart from reboots I am always logged in and just lock the screen when I'm not present, so Eclipse is running 24/7.
I would like to run system tests (JUnit and others) on a scheduled basis (overnight). I realize that I could build scripts to do this (Ant, etc) and run them externally to Eclipse, but Eclipse already has all the information necessary to run the tests and building parallel scripts is (or should be) an unnecessary duplication of effort. I could also set up a builder in addition to the Java Builder, but that's not appropriate as I don't want the tests to run every time I save a source file.
I do realize that this will give test errors on the unfinished changes that I'm currently working on, but I can live with that -- my main objective is to find where my changes break other projects ASAP.
Does anyone know if this is possible within Eclipse? Or alternatively, is there a project that will automatically process the Eclipse configuration files to generate an external script (Ant?) that I could run?
Any ideas appreciated.
