Are there any unit test frameworks for Java that have a checkbox style UI? I am really looking for an answer that is a web UI sort of thing (such as a jenkins plugin) but a satisfactory answer would be that there is an option built into an IDE similar to csUnit (for Visual Studio).

Since I asked this question 8 months ago, I have learned a lot and now have no need of a a checkbox style UI. This site won't allow me to delete this question (for this reason). The delete options dont have a choice for "owner wants to delete". –  djangofan Mar 2 at 20:03

There's a lot of them. 2 popular ones that are integrated into most Java IDE's are testng and junit.

I think you missed the "checkbox" part of the question. The question is about running a subset of tests by using checkboxes to define which to run, something csUnit supports within Visual Studio. –  Niels van Reijmersdal Jul 29 '14 at 21:32
Ah, I didn't realize you could use a checkbox to select which tests to execute, you see a list of tests with pass/fail ticked for each, and can select tests to run via marking them with annotatins, or just right clicking the scope you want to execute, but you are right that it does not allow you to select via a checkbox. –  Sam Woods Jul 29 '14 at 22:26
Thanks Sam. I updated my question a bit. –  djangofan Jul 30 '14 at 18:21

The short answer: No.

The long answer: There may be, but it would probably come in the form of an IDE plugin that utilizes one of the popular unit testing frameworks. If you come up with no solutions, I would heavily recommend looking into TestNG, as that is, in my opinion, the best unit testing framework out there. I really wish there was a .NET version of it.

TestNG has an IDE plugin but it does not allow you to checkbox enable tests. Not in Eclipse and not in IntelliJ-iDEA either. The closest thing I have ever seen is JBehave-Web but that project doesn't get enough developer cycles to be mature, IMHO. –  djangofan Sep 2 '14 at 23:11

Unit testing and checkbox ui are a little contradictory. Have you checked out FitNesse http://fitnesse.org?
