Description neilg 2009-03-20 23:08:32 UTC
When I execute "debug test file" in a Maven project an xml report from the test run is output in the project root
directory rather than the target/surefire-reports directory.
Comment 1 Milos Kleint 2009-03-23 08:15:00 UTC
it seems to be generated by the JavaRunner's (compile on save) internal scripts. reassigning to java for evaluation
Comment 2 Jan Jancura 2009-03-23 09:29:32 UTC
we will look at it.

Was going to submit a bug, but then saw this issue open in 6.7. I am assuming you have temporarily disabled the Debug
File action, as it no longer is enabled when right-clicking on a JUnit test class within a Maven project. Please confirm
or else i will open another issue.
Comment 6 Jesse Glick 2009-06-17 16:44:11 UTC
Dumping stray files into a versioned project directory is very bad and must be fixed. I think P2 is well justified.
Reproducible in 090615 (only in debugging mode). Anyway there is no reason that I can see to generate an XML report at
all for running a single test in debug mode.

Ought to be trivial to fix. (Why has this been sitting untouched for months?) Would even recommend 6.7 fix candidate
status. Try something like:

massimo - Run/Debug File are now only for running main() methods. Use Test File & Debug Test File to invoke JUnit.
Comment 7 massimo 2009-06-17 20:21:29 UTC
Jesse, thanks, but i see no 'Debug Test File' action in the contextual menu (see attached image). Using junit 3.x,
standard J2SE installation of NetBeans 6.7 RC3. The only debug action available is 'Debug File', which is grayed out.

Comment 9 Jesse Glick 2009-06-17 20:48:05 UTC
massimo - it's not in the context menu (don't ask me why; filed separately IIRC) but it is in the main Debug menu and
available via C-S-F6.
Comment 10 massimo 2009-06-17 20:53:23 UTC
Beautiful, thanks (should of thought of that). Going to add an issue for it (and maybe provide a patch, should be
trivial to add in the contextual menu), it should probably go there as well.
