List of bug fixes and enhancements in 0.16.0

New and Noteworthy

New Features

  • Support for parallel test execution with JUnit >= 4.7 has been added.
    If you use Junit >= 4.7, you can now have test classes or methods executed by several threads in parallel by adding -Dparallel=classes|methods|both on the commandline or by configuring
<plugin>
   <groupId>org.eclipse.tycho</groupId>
   <artifactId>tycho-surefire-plugin</artifactId>
   <version>${tycho-version}</version>
   <configuration>
     <parallel>classes|methods|both</parallel>
   </configuration>
</plugin>

Executing tests in parallel can be useful e.g. if you have long-running integration tests which are not CPU-bound.
Under the hood, this feature was enabled by porting the junit4.7 surefire provider to tycho.

  • Support for test frameworks is extensible now. This means you can add support for test frameworks other than JUnit if you provide an implementation of TestFrameworkProvider
