WARNING: Version 1.6 of Elasticsearch has passed its EOL date.
This documentation is no longer being maintained and may be removed. If you are running this version, we strongly advise you to upgrade. For the latest information, see the current release documentation.
It is possible to write parameterized tests, that get run multiple times with different parameters.
RandomizedRunner needs to be used rather than the
Parameterized runner provided with junit (all the base test classes already use
RandomizedRunner though). The method that provides the parameters
needs to be annotated with the
@ParametersFactory annotation and must be
public, without arguments and must have a return type assignable to
Iterable<Object>. The iterable must return arrays conforming to the suite class’s constructor with respect to the number and types of parameters.
The constructor’s parameters can be annotated with the
@Name annotation to provide more descriptive parameter names for test descriptions. Have a look at
ElasticsearchRestTests for an example.
