Adrian commented on SUREFIRE-31:
--------------------------------

Any idea when this might be done? 

I want to know whether it is worth using JUnit 4 yet or not.

Thanks!

> I know this is a pretty sizable task. I just wanted to get it in the system now that
4.0 has officially been released. Hopefully this will generate some discussion about how 4.0
will be handled - mainly if it will require a completely seperate implemenation of surefire
(keeping the same API so it can easily be used by the maven plugin), or if use of 4.0 will
be made a configurable option of the current surefire.
> Here's some additional features I'd like to see:
> 1. Ability to categorize tests. Unfortunately, 4.0 doesn't include an @Category annotation,
or make category a parameter of @Test. However, the filtering mechanism provided by 4.0 is
sufficent to support categories given the presense of such an annotation. I recommend putting
the @Category annotation in a seperate module (surefire-annotations?) and build support for
it into surefire. Hopefully the junit guys could be convinced to incorporate it in a later
version.
> 2. Similarly, support repeated tests via an @Repeated annotation. I'm not sure how easy
this would be to do external to junit.
