AblUnit Tests launch configurations do only appear in the Run menu - not in the Debug menu.
Is that a bug or a feature?
How can we debug our unit tests or the actual code which is being tested without having to create a .p file that instantiates the test class and executes the test method?
Debugging ABLUnit tests is not implemented. As you mentioned, currently the only way is to write a procedure/class that executes the test.
Mike, can you please post this in Ideas section? We will also send this to Product Management for consideration.
This has been implemented in 11.7 and you can give it a try in the latest OpenEdge 11.7 ESAP 6 release which was released on 18th February.
Please give it a try and let us know your comments.
