I am using "extends TestCase" and it is requiring that I use @Test.  This is where the error is explained:
Junit.framework.AssertionFailedError: No tests found in a.b.c.FooTest

Could I use TestCase without having to apply @Test?

chaituu, that is re-assuring.  Why is it that I am getting that message that I have to use @Test?

if you are using JUnit 3 version then no need to use @Test.if you are using JUnit version 4 you need to use @Test.

check the junit api for @Test is all about.

I'm trying to sent up my java files to use "extended TestCase."  I have changed it to JUnit 3.
Now I am getting this error (see below).   I have added TestCase() constructors, yet I am still getting the error.

Any suggestions?

error says you can't add these constructors TestCase(String name) or TestCase() in your testcase

chaituu, might you be able to add more detail to your comment?
Are you saying that the files I have, and the way they are set up, that I can not use "extends TestCase?"  Initially it gave this error: xmlSchema.ValidatorTest has no public constructor TestCase(String name) or TestCase()

can you send the testcase that you have written?

I figure that I had to have started with the proper test framework and not try to "automatically" convert the existing java files to Junit testing.  I have another set of files where the convertion did work.
