  • v1.2.1 Changes

    New features

    • JGiven-JUnit5 now reports its test outcomes back to JUnit5 before the @After methods, not after them. This should make it easier to run extensions like ReportPortal alongside JUnit5. ๐Ÿ›  ##Fixed issues
    • The @Tag annotation configuration can now be set differently from the JGiven defaults. #806 (thanks to sebphil)
    • JGiven no longer prints errors while scanning annotations that are not tags. #821
    • Fixed issue where parents of tags where not declared in the tag list, making the JGiven app unusable. #868 (thanks to jadhindieh for reporting)
    • JGiven now openly reports incompatability when running TestNG in multi-threading mode. #829
    • JGiven now openly reports incompatability to the JUnit5 per-class lifecyle#829
    • Fixed issue where aggregation of reports would lead to an exception when running in parallel with JUnit5.#829
    • The JGiven maven plugin did not declare itsself as thread-safe, even though it conceptually is. #829 (thanks to Hatzen for pointing it out and fixing it.) ##Backward incompatible changes
    • Removed explicit support for PowerMock in JGiven-JUnit4 package, because the powermock project appears to be abandoned.
  • v1.2 Changes

    ๐Ÿ†• New features

    • ๐Ÿ‘ JGiven now supports Spock 2 #784 (thanks to jsalinaspolo) ## ๐Ÿ›  Fixed issues
    • JGiven now records step timings correctly if there are intro or filler words in a step #755
  • v1.1 Changes

    ๐Ÿ†• New features

    • The lifecycle method annotations @BeforeStage and @AfterStage have an option to make the associated methods be invoked repeatedly if the stage class is invoked multiple times. Note that the duration of a stage is denoted by the change of the stage class, thus multiple invocations (no matter the form) on the same stage class count as one stage.
    • The field annotations @ScenarioState and @ProvidedScenarioState can be set to be guaranteed. This ensures that the stage that is declaring such field must operate on it during execution and after the stage finishes the field is ensured to be initialized.
    • ๐Ÿ‘ JGiven supports now an optional properties file,, which can be used to set some settings for the report generation, such as: enabled, directory, text.color.
    • โž• Added an internal module for injecting automated performance analysis for test methods.

    ๐Ÿ›  Fixed Issues

    Backwards Incompatible Changes

    • โœ… JGiven-TestNG now expects you to provide a version of TestNG on the runtime classpath
    • JGiven-Spring does not export its dependency on JGiven-Core anymore, because JGiven-Spring should be used with of the test packages JGiven-JUnit, JGiven-Spock, JGiven-JUnit5, JGiven-TestNG, where that dependency is exported
  • v1.0.0 Changes

    โšก๏ธ This is the first major version update of JGiven. It does introduce new features, as well as backwards-incompatible changes, ๐Ÿ—„ due to the removal of all deprecated classes and methods and the drop of Java 7 support.

    Spring 5 with JUnit 5

    ๐Ÿ‘ To better support Spring 5 with JUnit 5 the jgiven-spring module has been split up into three modules. You need to adapt your dependencies accordingly.

    Backwards Incompatible Changes

    • ๐Ÿ‘ Java 7 is not supported anymore
    • Calling stage methods annotated with @DoNotIntercept or declared within java.lang.Object will not trigger a stage change anymore #385
    • The Guava dependency changed to v27.1-jre. This might lead to problems in case your project also depends on Guava

    Cleaned up Module Dependencies
