TimeLimitedTests

trait TimeLimitedTests extends SuiteMixin

Trait that when mixed into a suite class establishes a time limit for its tests.

This trait overrides withFixture, wrapping a super.withFixture(test) call in a failAfter invocation, specifying a timeout obtained by invoking timeLimit and an Interruptor by invoking defaultTestInterruptor:

failAfter(timeLimit) {
  super.withFixture(test)
} (defaultTestInterruptor)

Note that the failAfter method executes the body of the by-name passed to it using the same thread that invoked failAfter. This means that the same thread will run the withFixture method as well as each test, so no extra synchronization is required. A second thread is used to run a timer, and if the timeout expires, that second thread will attempt to interrupt the main test thread via the defaultTestInterruptor.

The timeLimit field is abstract in this trait. Thus you must specify a time limit when you use it. For example, the following code specifies that each test must complete within 200 milliseconds:

import org.scalatest.FunSpec
import org.scalatest.concurrent.TimeLimitedTests
import org.scalatest.time.SpanSugar._

class ExampleSpec extends FunSpec with TimeLimitedTests {

  // Note: You may need to either write 200.millis or (200 millis), or
  // place a semicolon or blank line after plain old 200 millis, to
  // avoid the semicolon inference problems of postfix operator notation.
  val timeLimit = 200 millis

  describe("A time-limited test") {
    it("should succeed if it completes within the time limit") {
      Thread.sleep(100)
    }
    it("should fail if it is taking too darn long") {
      Thread.sleep(300)
    }
  }
}

If you run the above ExampleSpec, the second test will fail with the error message:

The test did not complete within the specified 200 millisecond time limit.

The failAfter method uses an Interruptor to attempt to interrupt the main test thread if the timeout expires. The default Interruptor returned by the defaultTestInterruptor method is a ThreadInterruptor, which calls interrupt on the main test thread. If you wish to change this interruption strategy, override defaultTestInterruptor to return a different Interruptor. For example, here's how you'd change the default to DoNotInterrupt, a very patient interruption strategy that does nothing to interrupt the main test thread:

import org.scalatest.FunSpec
import org.scalatest.concurrent.TimeLimitedTests
import org.scalatest.time.SpanSugar._

class ExampleSpec extends FunSpec with TimeLimitedTests {

  val timeLimit = 200 millis

  override val defaultTestInterruptor = DoNotInterrupt

  describe("A time-limited test") {
    it("should succeed if it completes within the time limit") {
      Thread.sleep(100)
    }
    it("should fail if it is taking too darn long") {
      Thread.sleep(300)
    }
  }
}

Like the previous incarnation of ExampleSuite, the second test will fail with an error message that indicates a timeout expired. But whereas in the previous case, the Thread.sleep would be interrupted after 200 milliseconds, in this case it is never interrupted. In the previous case, the failed test requires a little over 200 milliseconds to run. In this case, because the sleep(300) is never interrupted, the failed test requires a little over 300 milliseconds to run.

  9. abstract def suiteId: String

    A string ID for this Suite that is intended to be unique among all suites reported during a run.

    A string ID for this Suite that is intended to be unique among all suites reported during a run.

    The suite ID is intended to be unique, because ScalaTest does not enforce that it is unique. If it is not unique, then you may not be able to uniquely identify a particular test of a particular suite. This ability is used, for example, to dynamically tag tests as having failed in the previous run when rerunning only failed tests.

    this Suite object's ID.
