Bugs Fixed:
 -  TESTDOX-30 - Set default test naming scheme to @Test for JUnit 4 and TestNG

Minimal Requirements:
IntelliJ IDEA 12 running on Java 1.6
My first interaction with this plugin: - IndexNotReadyException on startup - Link in bug reporter pointing to project page is broken - Google search turns up this page where the link pointing to the bug tracker is broken ... Maybe this used to be a great plugin, I have no idea. Right now, it isn't. (To add insult to injury: THIS website fails to post my comment with a HTTP 500, and the highly informative message of "Unfortunately something went wrong", after I register, making me type it twice.)
Does not work well with other testing frameworks, even if they are based on JUnit. For example it does not recognize JDave's (http://www.jdave.org/) tests at all. The plugin should find the test methods based on the tests run by IDEA, and not by some naming conventions.
Support for JUnit 4.0?

My favorite plugin.
to Anonymous:
- yes it might be a problem that they overlap and not "complement" eachother(that would be in an ideal world)
- it is indeed confusing (I was confused myself too).
- it requires many improvements (well, what plug-in does not?)

but, NO, it should not be only one test plug-in: concurrence is very healty.

IMHO the Struts plug-ins are the best example for this. They solved this by making a comparison matrix, so IMHO this is exactly what the test plug-ins also need, to avoid confusion and clarify things:

So IMHO because:
- this plug-in has all the fields filled
- it comes with sources, so everyone can participate in improving it.
- the authors respond very fast (not like those from other plug-ins)
- to encourrage them keep up the good work and improve it further,

This plug-in deserves IMHO the maximum rating possible.
Been using Testdox plugin for a long time. It's one of those tools that 'Just works'.
I don't consider this plug-in deserves the highest ranking possible. It needs much work and better integration into the IDE. For now it's presence into the IDE its too "invasive".
It is also very bad that there are so many "test" plug-ins that have partially overlapping features, confusing strongly the user. There should be only one test plug-in, but that should be good.
Maybe after many improvements ...
Excellent plugin which is invaluable when working with unit tests. Especially useful for it's test navigation and test creation features.
Yes, I co-wrote it but I also use it every day both at work and on other projects.
