  • A new Android Guidelines test configuration has been added. It is based on the following standard:

Parasoft Findings for SonarQube

The Parasoft Findings Plugin for SonarQube has been introduced. The plugin allows you to view static analysis test results within SonarQube. For details, see Parasoft Findings for SonarQube. The plugin can be downloaded from the Parasoft marketplace:

Support for Parallel Builds

In addition to functionalities introduced in 2022.1, Jtest now supports test impact analysis for Gradle and Maven parallel builds.

  • CWE 4.9 (accuracy improved and number of duplicated findings reduced)
  • CWE Top 25 2022 
  • CWE Top 25 + on the Cusp 2022
  • CERT for Java Guidelines

A parameter has been added to allow reporting violations on constant values, and the definition of constant value has been extended.

Unit Test Assistant Enhancements

  • The Unit Test Assistant preferences contain a new option "Only add test cases that increase coverage" that is enabled by default. When this option is deselected, Jtest may add unit tests that do not add to the overall coverage of the code but that have additional variations in the unit tests that are created. You can deselect this option if you want to see whether Jtest can generate additional interesting test cases with variations on test setup. See Configuring Preferences.
  • The Unit Test Assistant has improved support for initializing variables whose type is a subclass of java.lang.Number.

Support for IDEs

The following IDEs are now supported:

  • IntelliJ 2022.1
  • IntelliJ 2022.2
  • Eclipse 2022-06 (4.24)
  • Eclipse 2022-09 (4.25)

Additional Updates

  • The mechanism of finding and analyzing project resource files has been improved. As a result, after upgrade many new violations may be reported against files in resource folders by rules that check XML or properties files, since those files were not previously being analyzed. If this happens, you can address the new violations in one of the following ways:
    • Fix or suppress each violation as appropriate.
    • Reconfigure rule properties to reflect how you want the rules configured.
    • Disable the rules if they do not need to be applied.
  • All required dependencies are now automatically resolved by Maven by the time jtest-maven-plugin is run. As a result, you may notice that more dependencies are resolved during Jtest plugin execution than during the test goal execution.
  • OIDC authentication with OKTA is now supported for both IDE and CLI-based workflows. See Configuring OpenID Connect in the UI and Configuring OpenID Connect in the .properties File.
  • General improvements to the Flow Analysis engine may cause some differences in the violations reported by Flow Analysis rules compared to the previous version.
  • The performance of the scope analysis with Git integration has been improved.
