What is the best way to set a classpath for config files within a JUnit test?
The problem I am having is with JUnit tests that require config files or other setup from the project, and require the resource to be loaded from the classpath. If I have a config directory with the files in it, then as far as I see I need to add the directory to the classpath of the module to allow the test case to class load the resource.
This leads to two problems:
1) Unmanageable classpaths that do not reflect the build requirements of the system
2) IntelliJ moves the directory to underneath the Libraries node on the Project tree, which in a large project with many 3rd party libraries is completely the wrong place to have them.
Either I am missing something in IntelliJ (we use 5.1 and are evaluating 6.0) or this seems to be a rather large problem with the IDE. At this stage it is preventing me from recommending that we continue using IntelliJ or upgrading to version 6.0.
Thanks in advance,
