<font color="#000000">Summary of Changes between 3.7 and 3.8</font></h2>
<h3>
<font color="#000000">Framework</font></h3>
<ul>
  <li>
    <font color="#000000">Made the string argument TestCase constructor
optional. You can now delete
constructors of the form "FooTestCase(String name) { super(name); }".</font></li>
  <li>
    <font color="#000000">Deleted deprecated assert(boolean) in favor
of assertTrue(boolean) and
assertFalse(boolean). To migrate to JUnit 3.8, rename calls to
assert(boolean)
to call assertTrue(boolean).</font></li>
  <li>
    <font color="#000000">Added assertFalse() to avoid the difficult of
reading the assertTrue(!
condition).</font></li>
  <li>
    <font color="#000000">Added assertNotSame(Object, Object).</font></li>
  <li>
    <font color="#000000">Deleted deprecated TestCase.name() in favor
of TestCase.getName().</font></li>
  <li>

<font color="#000000">Test Runner</font></h3>
<ul>
  <li>
    <font color="#000000">When you compare two long strings with a
small delta embedded in the middle, it
is hard to spot the difference. In 3.8, when you call
assertEquals(String,
String), only the differences between the strings are displayed. The
common
prefix and suffix are replaced with "...".</font></li>
  <li>
    <font color="#000000">Added initial version of a TestRunListener
attached to TestRunners which
eventually will replace TestListeners attached to the TestResult.</font></li>
  <li>
    <font color="#000000">Filled in ActiveTestSuite constructors.</font></li>
  <li>
    <font color="#000000">Added these packages to the
excluded.properties:<font size="2">

    <font color="#000000">Added TestSuite.addTestSuite(Class testClass)</font></li>
  <font color="#000000"><br>
This method allows to create a TestSuite with a class containing test
cases directly.
  <br>
Instead of writing <b>suite.addTest(new TestSuite(AssertTest.class))

  <li>

</ul>
<h3>
<font color="#000000">TestRunner</font></h3>
<ul>
  <li>
    <font color="#000000">The Swing TestRunner provides an experimental
feature to browse test classes.
There is an additional browse ("...") button besides the suite combo.
It
shows a simple dialog to select a test class from a list. Different
strategies
to locate Test classes are supported and you can plug-in your own
strategy.
This allows to leverage functionality provided by an extension API of
an
integrated development environment (IDE). To define a custom test
collector
you 1) implement the <b>junit.runner.TestCollector </b>interface and
2)
add an entry to the <b>junit.properties</b> file with the key <b>TestCollectorClass</b>
and the name of your TestCollector implementation class as the key:</font></li>
  <font color="#000000"><br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
TestCollectorClass=junit.swingui.LoadingClassPathTestCollector
  <br>
This class has to be installed on the class path.
  <br>
JUnit provides two different TestCollector implementations:
  </font>
  <ul>
    <li>
      <font color="#000000">simple
(junit.runner.SimpleClassPathTestCollector) - considers all classes
on the class path on the file system that contain "Test" in their name.
Classes in JARs are not considered.</font></li>
    <li>
      <font color="#000000">loading
(junit.runner.LoadingClassPathTestCollector) - loads all classes
on the class path and tests whether the class is assignable from Test
or
has a static <b>suite</b> method.</font></li>
  </ul>
  <font color="#000000">By default the simple the test collector is
used. The loading collector
is more precise but much slower than the simple one. The loading
collector
doesn't scale up when many classes are available on the class path.
  <br>
  <b><font color="#ff0000">Notice</font></b>: that both TestCollectors
assume that the class files reside are kept in the file system. This
isn't
case in VA/Java and they will not work there. A custom TestCollector is
required for VA/Java.
  <li>The Swing TestRunner now provides an additional test result view
that shows
all tests of the executed test suite as a tree. The view shows the
success
status for each test. The view is shown as an additional tab in the
TestRunner
window. In previous versions of JUnit this view was shown in a separate
window.</li>
  <li>
The failure panels in the Swing and AWT TestRunners filter the
exception
stack trace so that only non-framework stack frames are shown.</li>
  <li>
There is support to plug-in a custom failure panel that provides
additional
functionality like navigating from a failure to the source. To do so
you
implement the <b>junit.runner.FailureDetailView</b> interface and
register
the implementation class in the junit.properties file under the key <b>FailureViewClass</b>,
for example</li>
  <br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
FailureViewClass=MyFailureViewClassName.
  <li>The Swing and AWT TestRunners now understand an additional
command line
argument "-noloading". When this argument is set then the standard
system
class loader is used to load classes. This is an alternative to setting
the <b>loading</b> property to false in the junit.properties file.</li>
  <li>
Swing TestRunner - the maximum test history length shown in the suite
combo
can be defined in the junit.properties file with the key <b>maxhistory</b>.</li>
  <li>
BaseTestRunner.<b>getLoader</b>() is no longer a static method and can
now be overridden in subclasses.</li>
  <li>
BaseTestRunner removed dependency on JDK 1.2.</li>
  <li>
Swing TestRunner - fixed the problem that a suite name was sometimes
duplicated
in the history combo.</li>
  <li>
Swing TestRunner - the Run button is now the default button.</li>
  <li>
Output string truncation can now be controlled by adding the <b>maxmessage</b>
key with the desired maximum length to the junit.properties file.
Setting
maxmessage to -1 means no output truncation.</li>
  <li>
The Text TestRunner now shows the summary at the very end so that you
don't
have to scroll back.</li>
  </font>
</ul>
<h3>
<font color="#000000">Tests</font></h3>
<ul>
  <li>
    <font color="#000000">TextRunnerTest now only depends on a nonzero
status to indicate abnormal
