I wanted to know something about this approach vs cloning the test suite :
- In this case d'u use the same test case instance in order to
perform the test ?
If you do that then (considering the outcomes recorded in the
TestResult instance ;o) things have two meanings IMO :
- The same test case was run and failed many times (what I think
that happens in that approach ... CMIIW)
- A different test case was run for each concrete class but they all
perform the same assertions (what happens when cloning the test suite)
IMO I found that the later was more accurate since instances of
TestCase recorded in test results may contain important data useful
for post-mortem analysis (and I needed that considering the particular
requirements I had once upon a time ;o) .
Looking forward to your reply
