Hi all, I'm trying to run Junit tests with a rosjava application using catkin but it's not working. It doesn't find the tests. It does work using gradle though. I've pasted the outputs and the config file below. Any ideas of how to get this working with Catkin?

Output of running catkin:

There needs to be a target which tells catkin to invoke the java tests. Can you edit to show the contents of your CMakeLists.txt too? I'm guessing we might need to extend catkin to detect the java unit tests like python: catkin_add_nosetests @dirk-thomas

Since ROS doesn't support Java out-of-the-box I don't think catkin should be extended with Java-specific features. Instead rosjava_core should provide a CMake function to provide similar functionality as catkin_add_nosetests.
