Run tests

Quick way

If your tests don't require any specific actions before start, and you don't want to configure additional options, such as code coverage, you can run them by using the following options:

  • Place the caret at the test class to run all tests in that class, or at the test method, and press Ctrl+Shift+F10. Alternatively, click the gutter icon next to the test class or test method.

    The gutter icon changes depending on the state of your test:

    • The gutter icon marks new tests.

    • The gutter icon marks successful tests.

    • The gutter icon marks failed tests.

    Running a test using the gutter icon
  • To run all tests in a folder, select this folder in the Project tool window and press Ctrl+Shift+F10 or select Run Tests in 'folder' from the context menu.

Customizable way

When you run a test, Aqua creates a temporary run configuration. You can save temporary run configurations, change their settings, share them with other members of your team. For more information, refer to Run/debug configurations.

  1. Create a new run configuration or save a temporary one.

  2. Use the configuration switcher on the main toolbar to select the configuration you want to run.

  3. Click or press Shift+F10.

    Running a run/debug configuration for tests

After Aqua finishes running your tests, it shows the results in the Run tool window on the Test Runner tab. For more information about analyzing test results, refer to Explore test results.
