RE: [eclipse-dev] change in junit plugin

<let's take this discussion over to jdt-ui-dev>

It is important that you can still see green even when a test isn't
implemented yet.
Scott's approach shows a good way to do so.

In fact there are many other ways to tag a test case that needs to be done.
This is one
reason why we don't want to prescribe a particular one. We are looking into
a more general
scheme to customize the stubs that are generated by JDT.

For example, in the 2.1 stream you can tag it with a //TODO comment
and you automatically get a task marker.

there is no check box currently, but you can set properties in the VM
arguments of the
JUnit launch config, e.g., -Dfail_on_tbd=true. So you can define two launch
configs one with
the property set and another without it.

What I've been doing at work when grandfathering in junit tests is
something
like the following (I don't have the code with me, but here's the idea):

public class MyTestCase extends TestCase
{
  ...
  public void testSomething()
  {
     assertTrue("this test needs to be implemented",
                !Boolean.getBoolean("FAIL_ON_JUNIT_TBD"),
  }
}

This allows you to put the skeletons in place for all existing methods, and
still have a successful test run, while at the same time, giving you a way
to turn on a check to see which tests haven't really been implemented.

At work, I'm working on an Eclipse plugin to generate test case methods as
well, based on some patterns on method names, arguments, interface testing,
and so on. Don't know when we'll be done though...

REQEUST: It would be great if the Junit runner plugin had a checkbox
somewhere to set a system property like this before running tests...
