It looks like the gradle test output has 300M.
Comment 3 Tomas Hurka 2016-03-02 13:23:13 UTC
Problem seems to be in NetBeans-Gradle integration

> Attila, can you please take a look at this issue? Thanks!

I will have a look at it on friday most likely. Until then, my blind guess is that the standard output / error the tests generate are large and it has to be provided to the testing classes. If this is the case, what is the expected behaviour? Should I trim the standard output/error?
Comment 6 attila.kelemen 2016-03-07 18:46:04 UTC
Since there is nothing to reproduce the issue with, I have to guess. The only thing which can grow too large - in reasonable cases - is the text written to the standard output and the standard error. Therefore, I assume that that this is the issue.

Would it be an acceptable solution to somehow limit / disable the output text collection? This is the only way, I can think to solve this issue because I actually have to pass these outputs the NB's testing classes as a String instance.
