JUnit Manifest – Why no MainClass?

Time for a minor rant.

Why doesn’t the jUnit jar have a manifest with a MainClass atrtibute? Surely there is some useful default application that junit could run in this instance – I don’t know – maybe the Swing GUI test runner. It would sure save me looking up and typing the class name on the occasions I need to run a test outside Ant. Has further JUnit development stopped?

Oh well, back to those tests …

Update: OK, I can think of a few reasons 🙂
