Description bradmac 2009-06-17 23:01:48 UTC
Right click context menu on test classes shows the "Run File" option as disabled. However, running Test on the project
context menu works correctly.

 - i'm using the minimal download of 6.7RC2
 - i tried using the checkstyle and coverage plugins, now uninstalled
 - the project uses junit annotations, but i also tried a test class which extended TestCase and still no Run File option
 - when opening the same project with 6.5 it works fine
 - i tried disabling compile on save but didnt help

in 6.7 the Run action applies only to classes with main method, tests are executed with the Test File action.

closing as worksforme, please reopen if Test file action is also disabled.

Just tested again. Different project and with a fresh install of Netbeans 6.7 RC3.

When i right click on a test class i get a context menu with 'Run File', 'Debug File' and 'Run into Method' but no 'Test
File' menu item.

However, the 'Test File' option is available from the menu bar, so i can run the tests 

The project uses junit 3.8.1, and the test classes are extending the junit TestCase class, not using annotations (if
that makes a difference)

Please add 'Test File' to the right click context menu.
