java:S2187 (TestCases should contain tests) should cover MultithreadTC framework

In a class that extends MultithreadedTest there are no @Test annotated methods. Rather, the class should define methods initialize and finish, and any number of methods named beginning with thread which will be run by the framework.

See the documentation here: https://www.cs.umd.edu/projects/PL/multithreadedtc/docs/edu/umd/cs/mtc/TestFramework.html

Hello,

While I understand your point, I don’t think that we will improve the rule to handle this framework as of today.

We would of course reconsider the decision if other users express their interests. For the time being, I’m moving the thread in “Suggest new feature”.

Cheers,
Michael
