Re: [cdt-dev] New DSF test structure

I want to thank Elena for her recent efforts to cleanup the debug test suite.
We had a lot of classes simply to have different names for different gdb versions.
She used her JUnit expertise to clean that up and remove 89% of the test classes,
while keeping the same number of actual tests!

Not only will it bec easier to maintain, but it makes it much easier when a new GDB version
comes out.

I'll let her explain the new way to launch the tests, to make sure I also fully understand :)

Nice job Elena!

Subject: Re: [cdt-dev] New DSF test structure

I merged the SourceLookup test changes already in my next commit.
Its important to make writing junits easy. Once I am done refactoring I will write some info on how to use it from now on on dev list.

Hi Alena,

The new test structure [1] looks great. I will update the
SourceLookupTest once my big outstanding gerrits that touch them them
are merged.

I think it is great how with this structure I can easily run one test
on all GDB versions as a single JUnit run without having to create a
manual suite as I have been doing up until now [2]. It also looks
great in the JUnit UI.
