Illegal method name passed to 'dependsOnMethods'

Reports illegal method names passed to the dependsOnMethods attribute in the @Test annotation.

A method name is considered illegal if it can't be resolved into a valid, accessible @Test annotated method in the current class or any of its parent classes.


public class SampleTest { @Test(dependsOnMethods = "testSpellignError") public void testSample() {} @Test public void testSpellingError(){} }
