New in 10.5: Create and open tests for Groovy classes faster

Posted on by Maxim Medvedev

We’ve added a couple of new productivity features in IntelliJ IDEA 10.5 to make working with Groovy tests two bits more pleasant:

1. Now you can create tests for Groovy classes the same way you do in Java. You just need to invoke Create Test intention on the header of the class.

2. To navigate to an existing test from a class you can invoke Go to Test action (Ctrl+Shift+T by default).

Make sure to try it in the latest IntelliJ IDEA 10.5 EAP build.

    When you post key mappings please put the Mac default bindings as well as the Windows ones. They are almost never the same.

    Ted, if there is no special shortcut for Mac provided, this means you need just replace Ctrl to Meta.

    When will this come to the Flex world? Missing it there.

    This blog, and the twitter feed, are great! I enjoy getting these bite-sized tips on the new features, and I’m hanging out for IDEA 10.5. Especially the new Spring + Groovy love. (I’d better download a new EAP!)

    Keep up the good work!

    Thanks for making the create test intention for Groovy! that is v helpful. However, is it possible to create GroovyTestCase’s instead of JUnit tests?
