New Mauve features

Lately I added two useful new features to Mauve:

  1. A facility for running JUnit tests inside the Mauve testsuite. (I already posted about this idea). This way we can include existing JUnit testsuites into our regression run, and it allows for new tests to be written in the JUnit style and run natively inside the Mauve harness.
  2. An API and harness extension for writing and running interactive tests. This is useful for testing complex issues that can’t otherwise be covered, like rendering issues in Swing, or complex interaction/integration issues. It also allows to easily convert testcases from the bug database to be integrated into Mauve as regression tests.

I hope that this will be useful and that it helps improving the overall quality of GNU Classpath.
