We are converting the Junit tests of our Xtext based DSL from Junit4 to JUnit5.
The tests in this test suite is extending the Xtext testing class
org.eclipse.xtext.testing.AbstractLanguageServerTest


It was straight forward to get the test suites to run correctly using JUnit5 within Eclipse (2020-06), i.e. to run it with "Run as JUnit Test".

However, when running the test suite in Maven it does not work. Have tried to follow the advice given in different internet posts, but don't get it right anyway. For example:

wiki.eclipse.org/Tycho/How_Tos/JUnit5
And
blogs.itemis.com/en/xtext-2.14-adds-support-for-junit-5

The error we get looks like this:
runTest: 212->AbstractCbbLspTest.testValidation:139->AbstractLanguageServerTest.initializeContext:1132->AbstractLanguageServerTest.initialize:340->AbstractLanguageServerTest.initialize:353->AbstractLanguageServerTest.lambda$initialize$1:348 ยป NullPointer 


Running it in the debugger indicates that there is some problem with the execution of the @Before / @BeforeEach functions. The NullPointer above is a result of that the AbstractLanguageServerTest.setup() function isn't executed before the test case starts.

Also, when running in the debugger, I noticed that the class files of the org.junit.jupiter.engine package used when running with Maven does not seem to match the class files of the org.junit.jupiter.engine package that is used in Eclipse (version 5.6.0).

Our environment:
Eclipse 2020-06
Maven version 3.8.2
Maven compiler plugin version 3.8.1
Maven surefire plugin version 2.22.2
Junit 5 version 5.6.0
Java 11.0.1-1 (but we target Java 8 in our builds)
Tycho version 2.5.0
Xtext version 2.22.0
mwe2-launch-version 2.11.3

Due to a dependency that we don't control, we can't easily use versions later than Xtext 2.22.0 as we are bound to use Eclipse 2020-06 main release.

Any hints pointing me in the right direction are most welcome.

Best regards
Lars Gelin

why cant you make sure the junit version is the same.
maybe this is better asked in https://github.com/eclipse/tycho/discussions as it seems to be a tycho config problem

Hi, thanks for your quick reply. I do believe that we get the correct JUnit version (5.6.0) both in Eclipse and when running from Maven. It seams that the debugger gets confused somehow.

During the evening we discovered a workaround. By adding these two methods in our sub-class to org.eclipse.xtext.testing.AbstractLanguageServerTest our test suite now run fine also with Maven:
  @BeforeEach
  override void setup() {
    super.setup();
  }
  
  @AfterEach
  override void cleanup() {
    super.cleanup();
  }

Would be nice to understand why we need these.
Thanks,
Lars

Yes, I also noticed these annotations on the super class. Strange why they do not take effect in our Maven builds.

i tried to reproduce and see this in the log
java.lang.IllegalStateException: No Xtext languages have been registered. Please make sure you have added the languages's setup class in '/META-INF/services/org.eclipse.xtext.ISetup'
i wonder how you overcome that

here is my reproducer.

if the baseclass is in project it works,
if baseclass is in mydsl.ide, it works too
if the baseclass is not it works with the override only

https://github.com/cdietrich/xtext-lsp-tests-with-tycho

it also works when i put the baseclass to mydsl.ide
i wonder: is there something wrong with the bytecode shipped by xtext
