Subject Re: HEADS-UP: JtestR support
Date Mon, 15 Nov 2010 19:14:21 GMT
Good to hear somebody's using our JtestR integration :)

I think there's two ways to make it work,

1) Upgrade JtestR to RSpec2, this way we have aligned dependencies and our
integration code can work with both RSpec directly and JtestR.

2) Keep JtestR where it is and use different integration code (in particular
different RSpecResultHandler than the one used for RSpec 2 since there were
API changes).

I'll commit some local changes I have and provide some more information
later.
