Opening tests in seperate tabs.

Currently if a test is running and I start another test, it will open in another tab, which is great!
How can I set this as the default behavour ?

There doesn't seem to be an option in the Run Dialog to do this.

Eclipse has a test history feature which is very handy!


A feature like this would be very helpful. May times I want to rerun only one particular test.
Then go back and run the wrole test suite, then run one test class again.
When I do this sometimes the default directory is not picked up or I need to set a parameter.
Because there is only one tab by default I loose those settings, when another test starts.

In run tool window you can right click on a test tab and select "Pin". This
tab will not be occupied by another running process until closing.

It seems to be impossible to configure particular test to always run in pinned
tab. So, after project reopening you have to run, then pin again.

This functionality is hidden very well. I think we should open a request for
that.
We could have the pin button in the left vertical toolbar, next to "Close"
button.

why not, but this same "pin" concept is available on every editor and toolwindow I know of.
that is
- code editor
- Find result
- Find Usages
- Run
- Debug

and maybe others I'm not aware or forget

Yes, but in Run Tests and Search result it is particulary useful.
