Projects / Grester


The Maven-Grester plugin is a Maven2 plugin for Jester, the JUnit tester tool. It enables Jester to be executed at any valid Maven lifecycle phase in a Maven Project. It saves developers from constructing cumbersome Java classpath entries on the commandline every time they need Jester to run against JUnit Tests in the project. It can also help to dispense with a suite of scripts that may have been written to handle complex Java classpath executions for Maven projects.

      Release Notes: A major change was made to the project's group ID so that the folks at can upload grester to maven's public repo. The org.apache.maven.plugins group ID is reserved for Apache folks, though it makes it easier to run locally without specifying group+artifactIds. The Readme file was changed to reflect changes.

          Release Notes: Unit and integration tests on the Linux platform were fixed by using Suse 10.1 Beta 8 as a testing platform. GroovyMojoSupport's logging mechanism is used for logging while an application is running rather than groovy's output to System Output. A few helper classes were added for the unit tests and some tests were segregated to be strictly unit tests.
