Class JUnitPlatform

All Implemented Interfaces:
Describable, Filterable

@API(status=DEPRECATED, since="1.8") @Deprecated public class JUnitPlatform extends Runner implements Filterable
since 1.8, in favor of the @Suite support provided by the junit-platform-suite-engine module; to be removed in JUnit Platform 2.0
JUnit 4 based Runner which runs tests on the JUnit Platform in a JUnit 4 environment.

Annotating a class with @RunWith(JUnitPlatform.class) allows it to be run with IDEs and build systems that support JUnit 4 but do not yet support the JUnit Platform directly.

Please note that test classes and suites annotated with @RunWith(JUnitPlatform.class) cannot be executed directly on the JUnit Platform (or as a "JUnit 5" test as documented in some IDEs). Such classes and suites can only be executed using JUnit 4 infrastructure.

Consult the various annotations in the org.junit.platform.suite.api package for configuration options.

If you do not use any configuration annotations from the org.junit.platform.suite.api package, you can use this runner on a test class whose programming model is supported on the JUnit Platform — for example, a JUnit Jupiter test class. Note, however, that any test class run with this runner must be public in order to be picked up by IDEs and build tools.

When used on a class that serves as a test suite and the @IncludeClassNamePatterns annotation is not present, the default include pattern "^(Test.*|.+[.$]Test.*|.*Tests?)$" will be used in order to avoid loading classes unnecessarily (see ClassNameFilter#STANDARD_INCLUDE_PATTERN).
