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

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 you can get
project templates that include test debug targets. See also
