Smart Testing 0.0.8 Released

Since we wrote this post we didn't laze around. Check our latest announcement.

The Arquillian team is proud to announce the 0.0.8 release of the Smart Testing component!

Test method selection

In all previous versions of the Smart Testing tool, by using the selecting mode, it was possible to select the whole test classes only.

In this release, we have introduced a possibility of selecting on the test method level. This new feature can be applied with two strategies: failed and categorized.
In case of the failed strategy – if you have a class with 10 test methods and only one of them fails, then in the next build Smart Testing selects and executes only the one test method that failed instead of running the whole test class. This should minimize the test suite execution and make the feedback loop much faster.
In case of the categorized strategy, it means that Smart Testing now resolves the annotations specified on the test methods and is able to select only test methods that belong to required categories.
By default, it is enabled for both strategies, but you can disable it either in the configuration file or using system properties -Dsmart.testing.failed.methods=false or -Dsmart.testing.categorized.methods=false respectively.

Test method selection can be used only with the selecting mode.

What’s next

In the next release, we are going to provide you a support for excluding categories in the categorized strategy. Stay tuned!

What is Smart Testing?

Smart Testing is a tool that speeds up the test running phase by reordering test execution plan to increase a probability of fail-fast execution and thus give you faster feedback about your project’s health.
