The Generate Test Case Plugin aides java developers with writing @should style test units.
This project aims to make it easier to make TDD with a really cool and easy approach that consist in annotating interface method with desired behaviours like this:
So with this plugin you could generate a test class for this interface like this one automatically:
And then test your implementation code like this
This way you can realize that for testing this behaviour you just wrote the should annotation in the sut (system under test) in a really
Auto-generated the test class and test method (using the plugin) and then tested the actual expected behaviour with (hamcrest style junit test):
What it Does
- Adds a menu item to the "right click" context menu on all .java files called Generate Test Cases
- A popup menu appears that allows you to choose which of the @should methods you want to generate
- If a similar ___Test class name exists, a new @Test method is added to the end of it
- If a similar ___Test class name does not exist, a new test class is added in the /test folder
