Description asleson 2006-01-26 15:32:59 UTC
NetBeans provides the ability to debug through JUnit tests, which is a huge productivity tool for tracking down bugs. Unfortunately this ability is only available in "native" NetBeans projects. Unless used in a tightly-controlled environment, most projects used by developers will almost surely be free form projects. It would be nice to be able to debug through JUnit tests in free form projects.

The JUnit module does support displaying of test results in free-form projects (see http://junit.netbeans.org/doc/binding-freeform-to-output.html). Reassigned to module ant/freeform for further evaluation.

It is possible, just not yet set up for you automatically. If you get the Freeform Project Extras module from nbextras.org you can get project templates that include test debug targets.
