With the advent of
GradleTestKit really coming of age since Gradle 2.13 it had deprecated some of the need of GradleTest and has superceded it with better reporting.
At Gradle Summit 2016, I had a conversation with @bmuschko about what the limits of reponsibility of GradleTestKit are. So instead of completly killing off GradleTest I’ve put some work into it to utilise GradleTestKit underneth, but still allow plugin authors to write test projects which can then be run
The updated plugin, which will be version 1.0, will detect the current version of Gradle and automatically switch to legacy mode if a developer’s plugin is being built with anything Gradle 2.12 or younger. If the plugin is built with 2.13+ it will invoke a new
GradleTestKit-based operation which will bring all of the known Gradle test reporting with it.
Currently it is all on a branch - https://github.com/ysb33r/gradleTest/blob/testkit/README.adoc, but the beta plugin is already in the plugin portal.
I would like to invite people to try it out and raise issues, questions and suggestions against it on Github.
Edit: The code has been merge to master: https://github.com/ysb33r/gradleTest
