[GRADLE-2952] TestNG execution misses hierarchical tests that don't have any test methods Created: 12/Nov/13 Updated: 10/Feb/17 Resolved: 10/Feb/17
It's possible to create a test class that does not have any test methods but the parent class of the test does have valid test methods. The test class in question usually has some protected methods that override / configure some behavior of the parent class that contains the details of the test. This pattern of writing tests does not seem to be fully supported by our TestNG test class detector. The effect is that those classes are not included in execution.
