Subject [jira] (SUREFIRE-751) Support parallel/fork mode similar to
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2013 21:28:13 GMT


Andreas Gudian commented on SUREFIRE-751:

It is a duplicate, but the implementation ended up kind of different. What's described in
the last example (the one called perthreadOnce) is achieved by using {{forkMode=perthread}},
{{reuseForks=true}} and some value >1 for {{threadCount}}.

> The current parallel execution spawns one thread _per_class_
> When there is a large disparity between the number of tests in different classes, this
can result in a longer execution time. This can often happen in GUI testing, where a couple
of classes will contain a lot of long running (but low cpu) test cases, and the remaining
classes run fast.
