Subject [jira] Commented: (SUREFIRE-713) Allow setting of excludes and includes via text files
Date Tue, 15 Mar 2011 17:32:22 GMT


Andrew Bayer commented on SUREFIRE-713:

Sounds reasonable to me. I'll try to extend what I've already got to allow specifying exclude/include
patterns as -D properties, at the very least.

> It'd be handy in some circumstances to be able to read the excludes (and includes) from
text files. This would allow for dynamically determining which tests to skip or include (for
whatever reason) before the tests are executed, or for pulling in a list of tests to exclude/include
from an external source, etc. We're planning to use this at Cloudera for segregating "flaky"
tests from our primary test runs (and vice versa). Patch attached, though I'm sure it could
still use work.
