Subject RE: PyUnit integ ?
Date Mon, 02 Dec 2002 23:53:18 GMT
That's not what I said... I wasn't talking of generating Java sources from
Python unit tests, but writing Java wrappers to these Jython classes.

Assuming a Jython unit test is similar in nature to a Java JUnit test (test
methods), you can write a Java wrapper with a single test method which calls
a given Jython method from a given class. Wrap all Jython test method in
such wrapper instances (that's what JUnit is doing itself in a nutshell),
then collate them into a test suite, and voilĂ ! You have a pure JUnit test
suite that delegates to Jython code for the actual processing... something
<junit> can understand easily.

The devil's in the details, but from 30,000 ft, it's doable. --DD

I already tried that and this is too limitating. the java code generated
jython scripts does not enable overload and raises few issues. in fact junit
does not recommand at all to work this way to integrate jython tests into
kinda guess that's why PyUnit was created. I'll write a task for PyUnit and
propose for ANT integration.
