Ant 1.6.2 is out

Yep, Ant 1.6.2 has been released. And the forkmode option for JUnit is there!. I’m really happy.

Updated: Time figures for the fork mode option:

forkMode=”perTest”: 3 minutes 31 seconds for a standard (non-clean) build

formMode=”perBatch”: 1 minute 16 seconds.

So about half the old build (which did do more than just run the unit tests) was taken launching the test JVMs. Absolutely amazing.

Oh, and then there’s the test failures because of bad tests that changed static values and didn’t reset them; must remember to talk to the team about that…

My name is Robert Watkins. I am a software developer and have been for over 18 years now. I currently work for people, but my opinions here are in no way endorsed by them (which is cool; their opinions aren’t endorsed by me either). My main professional interests are in Java development, using Agile methods, with a historical focus on building web based applications. I’m also a Mac-fan and love my iPhone, which I’m currently learning how to code for. I live and work in Brisbane, Australia, but I grew up in the Northern Territory, and still find Brisbane too cold (after 16 years here). I’m married, with two children and one cat. My politics are socialist in tendency, my religious affiliation is atheist (aka “none of the above”), my attitude is condescending and my moral standing is lying down.
