AbstractSuite an extended API for JUnit tests.

A test environment is a hierarchical relation of individual tests bundled in test suites. Test suites can thus combine individual tests and other partial test suites.

Test Environment
  + Suite 1
  .   |
  .   + Suite 1.1
  .   |   |
      |   + Test 1.1.1
      .   .
      .   .
      .   .
      |   + Test 1.1.n
      + Suite 1.n
      .   |
      .   + Test 1.n.1
      .   .
          + Test 1.n.n

In a good test environment the test can be started at any place.
This presupposes that each test can completely prepare, use and terminate the test environment.

AbstractSuite should help here and simplify the implementation of the test hierarchy.

The own (Abstract)Suite is the supreme and central static component of all tests and can use further abstraction layers and sub-suites.

  + AbstractSubSuite (Layer 1)
  .   |
  .   + AbstractSubSuite (Layer n)
  .   |   |
      |   + Test 1
      .   .
      .   .
      .   .
      |   + Test n
      + AbstractSubSuite (Layer n +1)
      .   |
      .   + Test 1
      .   .
          + Test n

What does AbstractSuite do?

AbstractSuite takes care of providing the test environment no matter where the test is started.
The mostly static architecture of JUnit provides various possibilities for preparation and finalization. However, it is difficult to centralize and generalize them.
AbstractSuite helps with additional interactors (like events).
It is possible to annotate central methods and sequences that are executed with start and end of the test environment, start and end of test classes, or executed before and after the execution of tests.
Additional central I/O interfaces (e.g. System.out and System.err) are redirected so that they can be better included in the tests.

What do I have to do?

A test environment with AbstractSuite is based on hierarchical (sub)suites and tests.
Even if it is a static construction, it is important that all components inherit according to this hierarchy. Thus, the test environment knows which prerequisites are required for the execution of a test. This allows you to start the test at any point in the test environment.
