Not sure whether this "request" makes sense, thus I'd like to first
"discuss" it here.
What I would like to do is to, within a JUnit-run configuration, have
something execute before the tests run (and probably after that) - I
know I can do this with a JUnit-suite or in each testcase but I don't
want to put this into the tests as this "before" method is
resource-intensive. On the other hand I don't want to create a Suite as
they always get out-of-sync (e.g. tests missing) and I prefer IDEA's
JUnit run-configurations (e.g. execute all in package/module/project
etc.) - they don't need to be maintained.
Long talk, short request: Is it possible to have beforeAllTests and
maybe afterAllTests) methods/code or, if not, would it make sense to add
such a feature?
