Released MarathonITE 3.3.4: Reuse the fixtures

We are pleased to announce the availability of MarathonITE 3.3.4. With this new release you can reuse the fixtures – i.e run the tests without relaunching the AUT. Moreover, we have cleaned up the amount of code that is used as a hook on the AUT, which should reduce the JAR conflicts some of you faced.

Now MarathonITE uses latest versions of Jython and JRuby.

Reusing Fixtures

Create a new fixture and select the reusable checkbox. Marathon launches the application and runs the setup only the first time. Record/write test scripts to ensure that all tests that use a reusable fixture starts from the same state. Note that when using reusable fixtures, teardown from the fixture is not used as it does not make sense in this case.
