Autotest Migrating to Java World

Some recent signs of continuous testing coming to Java land:

  • Grails 1.1 features 9 new features including #9 Continuous Testing.
  • Kent Beck is developing JUnit Max an Eclipse plug-in that runs tests in the background optimizing for the tests that are most likely to break.

Autotest was a joy to use when I got to spend more time playing with Rails. Maybe I won’t have to miss it that much longer.
