Description _ gtzabari 2012-02-11 19:21:45 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201202010600)
Java: 1.7.0_02; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 22.0-b10
System: Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64; Cp1252; en_US (nb)
User directory: C:\Users\Gili\.netbeans\dev
Cache directory: C:\Users\Gili\.netbeans\dev\var\cache

1. Run test using ALT+F6
2. Output window indicates that some tests have failed but doesn't show any output from the failed tests. For example:

Total tests run: 27, Failures: 1, Skips: 0

3. The output in the Test Results window uses tooltips to display any exceptions thrown by failed errors. Long tooltips are cut off (there is no word-wrapping). There is no stack-trace. Overall this is very inconvenient.

4. The JUnit plugin lists the output of failed tests in the Output Window. We should do the same unless you can come up with an even better idea.
