Where to place testcode?

Where to place testcode?

Where to place testcode?

Hello everyone,

Are there any drawbacks with having the testcode in the project that is to be tested? Then releasebuild will contain testcode, but that should not be any problems what I can see.

Currently we have testcode in separate module but I was thinking it would be easier to work testdriven if realcode is closer to testcode (or did I read it somewhere?)

RE: Where to place testcode?

The benefits of having the test code in with the project is that any refactoring applied by the IDE to production code will refactor your tests too.

There is no need to have test code in your release build. If you adhere to the naming conventions of ending all your test classes with 'Test', then your build tool should be able to filter them out when building the release jars.

Just be careful not to call any production classes with names ending with 'Test'. :)
