Unit test output verbosity


#1

Hey,

I have a question. I wrote some unit tests for my simple app. Since it’s
a
part of a larger whole, it’s managed inside a continuous integration
framework. For that purpose I would like to report the unit tests that
are
executed not only by their overall failure or success, but in more
detail.
Is there any way in which I can increase the verbosity of messages sent
to
standard output, so that I can see the names of all test case
subclasses,
and all test methods, with a distinction whether or not they succeeded?
The
best would be to get a junit format of xml report, but I have tools to
do
that for me from plain text, so this isn’t a big deal. I will appreciate
any
insight.

Cheers,
Chris

Are you using test-unit? If so, you can use -vv option.

Thanks,

Hi again,

Yes, I’m using Test::Unit, but the -w parameter You mentioned doesn’t
seem
to have done anything. Any other ideas? Thanks for help anyways.

Chris

No, no, no. Two “v"s (”-vv") not one “w” ("-w").
See --help.
