Will there be support for running selenium grid spec tests in parallel using the rake runner?
I have been launching my rspec and test unit scripts for a few months now using the rake runner. I like the way that the rake runner reports the number of completed tests as they are executing. I also like the pass fail history per individual test in the tests run. The problem is that I can't run tests in parallel using the team city rake runner. I am using the selenium grid for test execution. It is very important to know that the rake task to run scripts in parallel in the ruby example with the selenium grid distribution is not a standard spec task. The spec task is overridden by the deep test gem that allows you to run tests in parallel. Deep test is dependant on rspec 1.1.8, if you launch your scripts using the team city rake runner, deep test cannot override the default spec task correctly because it is running on the customized rspec library used for the team city rake runner. I finally realized that is the reason that my tests are not executing in parallel. I changed the runner to be command line and now my tests execute in parallel. The only down side is that I don't get the per test stats that the rake runner gives.
Will there be support for running rake tasks based on deep test in the future?
