no library, except some security enforcing or style check tools that warn or fail you if an
protection of a member is looser than it is needed. After all, you may want to call your test
methods from some code that needs it to be public. JUnit 5 does not require it to be public,
so the test methods should be declared only public if there is some extra use of them other
than the JUnit 5 framework that needs them to be public.

   > Common sense when programming in Java. Every class and member should be declared with
the least permissive modifier. Why don't we just declare everything public? In the case of
JUnit 5 tests that is package-private.
   > I also feel some inconsistency not liking this pull request because some future pull-requests
may still come up using the public modifier in tests and the same time saying that if some
other pull requests (without this one merged) come up without the public modifier they are
   Thanks for your reply @verhas. Do you have a link to any JUnit 5 documentation supporting
what you just said, please?
   I just had a look at one example of their docs (,
and simplified it removing the `Calculator`.
   import static org.junit.jupiter.api.Assertions.assertEquals;
   import org.junit.jupiter.api.Test;
   public class TestTests {
       void addition() {
           assertEquals(2, 2);
   Executed with Maven and Eclipse, both worked fine.

   Changing the modifier to `public`, I got the exact same output on both, with no issues/warnings,
