Parallel execution and re-rerun of failed tests in suite

We don't have a mechanism to execute tests in a test suite in parallel with maven or ant, as RIT doesnt support it. We don't have any automated approach which RIT provides to re-run the failures after test execution which is a big blocker for us with DevOps in context.

We have a workaround for this, if we select to run all tests in test suite but no workaround exists for re-running failed tests.

    Whilst this request is no longer being considered for inclusion in RIT, the ability to re-rerun failed tests in as optimal way as possible is consistent with our objectives for RTAS so the category has been amended. Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.

    Hi,

    How to execute multiple test cases in parallel without having a test suite?.

    Also how to run multiple test suites in parallel?. RIT provides capability only to run test cases in a test suite in parallel.

    Refer to this for maven example: https://maven.apache.org/surefire/maven-surefire-plugin/examples/fork-options-and-parallel-execution.html

    A test suite already includes the ability to execute tests in parallel. Please provide more details of what you are expecting that Maven would do differently from our native test suites, in order to help us better understand the request.
