Description (last modified by Ramiro Morales)

The simple django test runner looks for tests in either or This is unfortunate for large applications since in each app becomes rather large and unwieldy. Apps with a large number of tests can break out their tests further by creating a method called suite() that returns a TestSuite. This works for test separation but because the runner still looks for test cases in or it is no longer possible to run an individual TestCase or TestCase.test_method .

In addition to supporting the ability to specify tests to run as:

  • app
  • app.TestCase
  • app.TestCase.test_method

also support:

  • app.module.TestCase.test_method
  • app.module.TestCase.*

I'm including a patch which adds this functionality.

This looks more like a documentation bug to me, you can replace with a tests python package and you can have as many submodules as you want in different files in that package as explained in the Python docs.

I'm attaching a documentation patch.
