for eg, I should be able to run ../bin/ -clean SlideShowPlugin, which makes it look for the nearest Suite file

or ../bin/ -clean should look for the nearest Suite file (ie the

also, I'd like to be able to request it to run just one specific test - ../bin/ -clean SlideShowPluginTests::test_Simple

Confirmed and regraded to enhancement. This is one of these "if you don't do it, nobody else is going to unless they need the same thing" jobs.

Done on trunk. Shall I merge it to the release branch?

-- OlivierRaginel - 24 Mar 2009

release branch - sounds good smile

oh, the cruelty - I can think of another - ../bin/ -clean SomeTests::verify_NotSoSimple

-- SvenDowideit - 27 Mar 2009

This works for me. The filter is done on the test array that's built, so if you can see it in the output, you can run it.

And I've merged it onto the release branch.

Sven, thanks to close if it fits your needs smile

As Lavr pointed out, it broke the Suite tests, so: ../bin/ -clean CommentPlugin/

I've fixed that, but now I'm puzzled. What should: ../bin/ -clean CommentPlugin do? For now, it finds both CommentPlugin/ and CommentPlugin/, and run them both. As the Suite one just includes the Tests one, it's a bit silly.

So what I could do is favor the Suite one if one is found.

Input appreciated...

What I did is:

So in brief, I think I kept compatibility, with enhancing functionnality.

Let me know if you still can think of something that's not done, or if you can find some ways that aren't working.

I don't understand the examples. How does TranslatorTests know where to find

I don't want to throw you into confusion, but I could get my head round a package specification relative to test/unit; Make / synonymous with :: and strip trailing .pm and you are cooking with gas. I don't perceive any requirement to simplify it further than that.

-- CrawfordCurrie - 04 Apr 2009

Sorry, hadn't seen your comment before. It knows where to find it by looking for anything that matches TranslatorTests.* in the test/unit folder, recursively.

Therefore, there is no need to specify the plugin name.
  • WysiwygPlugin/TranslatorTests -- works, and has always worked
The rest was made so that one can copy/paste the output of a test suite that fails to re-run that specific test.

I think I implemented what you were asking for without reading that. Like one say, great minds think alike.

Please, let me know if you see any way to enhance that further, otherwise I'll close it.

-- OlivierRaginel - 22 Apr 2009

I like what you've done - thanks!

i recon its magical.
