I have some code in my project I personally call
tests that are not unit tests. They are meant to be run and the result has to be evaluated by a human. I did this because I'm making a physics engine and during development, I needed to see what I'm doing. So I made a
simulation package in my test module. It is technically unit tests because the simulations are using the unit test library but I do not mean to run them all like my actual unit tests.
What I would like to do is differentiate those special tests from my unit tests because I want to run all unit tests easily. I think it is a bit like functional tests. Did you ever encounter a case where you had to prepare your application for a functional tests ? Where does that functional test preparation (basically what my simulations are) should be placed in the project and how to distinguish them from unit tests ?
I'm in Java so I could change all my methods signatures from
@Test public void myNamedTest() to
public static void main(String args) but it would be laborious and less practical for me to use my simulations.
junit in a
gradle project. Any solution creating a special test folder with
gradle is welcome.
