I have a project on netbeans platform. There is a gradle plugin, which builds netbeans’
Netbeans also have junit-based test framework, which can run tests inside well-established netbeans’ environment.
So what am I doing is making another one test task calling
nbtest to which I
*NbTest classes and simultaniously I
exclude them from default
test task. (Some tests does not need netbeans environment, so this way I can have simple junit tests too)
It works fine.
But there is a problem:
When test sources being changed
test task (with some help of it’s predecessors I think) rebuilds test classes. And I need first pack them with
netbeans task and only then run my
nbtest. Or else my test will be run against classes inside old
nbm module, which was build last time I called
netbeans task explicitly.
So I need something like: when
test task rebuilds the classes then first call
netbeans task and then
nbtest task. And I also do not want to type
gradle netbeans nbtest all the time, I want just
gradle nbtest and it to detect all the things automatically.
And there is also an obstacle:
netbeans task does not detect if it is
UP-TO-DATE, so I cannot bind them unconditionally or else it will lead to time waisting on every launch.
