I was discussing the various Lua testing frameworks with Fabien
recently. I'm not really satisfied these and have been using a home
grown framework and am more recently experimenting with Behavior
Driven Development (BDD) (like Ruby RSpec) with a matching library
(like ) and implementing this in terms of Metalua as a
domain-specific language. The description of ScalaTest perhaps
provides a helpful model for Lua given TMTOWTDI.
That doesn't address your general question, particularly the parallel
test (Lua Lanes) handling, but I think it's worth revisiting
alternatives to the traditional JUnit style testing (though not
necessarily invalidating it).
