Subject [jira] Created: (SUREFIRE-530) Allow runtime ordering of tests to be specified
Date Fri, 21 Nov 2008 07:00:41 GMT
Allow runtime ordering of tests to be specified

                 Key: SUREFIRE-530
             Project: Maven Surefire
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: plugin
    Affects Versions: 2.4.3
         Environment: testNG, Junit
            Reporter: Nick Pellow

Allow other plugins to specify tests to get run, and preserve the ordering of tests.

Currently, a plugin may set the "test" parameter with a comma separated list of tests to run.
However, the order is not preserved.

For plugins such as the maven-clover2-plugin, (possibly the maven-reactor-plugin?) that optimize
the build/test run, ordering of a tests is a very nice way to ensure the build fails as fast
as possible.
