#1871 defect closed fixed (fixed)

Instantiating twisted.trial.unittest.TestCase with no arguments raises nasty exception

methodName defaults to None but this doesn't seem to actually work. It probably shouldn't have any default at all, or else it should be possible to instantiate a TestCase with a None methodName.

pyunit also breaks horribly when you instantiate TestCases without a methodName.

I've made the parameter compulsory in source:branches/testcase-init-1871, which is ready for review.

There aren't any tests, because, well, who writes tests for method signatures?

I can't really think of a useful test to write here, either. +1

(In [17507]) TestCase's parameter is no longer optional

  • Fixes #1871

TestCase used to fail badly when no methodName parameter was supplied to its constructor. This branch makes the parameter compulsory. It does technically break API compatibility with pyunit, but not in any meaningful way.
