Spring Boot: Create a “RunAllTests” test class with JUnit 5

I like having an easy way to run all tests in a specific package path. I will here show an example of how to create a “RunAllTests” class to use in Spring Boot 2 and JUnit 5 (Jupiter):

package com.niklasottosson.myapp;

import org.junit.platform.runner.JUnitPlatform;
import org.junit.platform.suite.api.SelectPackages;
import org.junit.runner.RunWith;

 * Test class to run all unit tests.
public class RunAllTests {

This will tell JUnit to search the files in the package described (and below) in the @SelectPackages annotation for tests to run

For Spring Boot 2.3.8 the normal “spring-boot-starter-test” dependency was not enough to get the JUnitPlatform into my app (for the @RunWith annotation), so I had to add the following dependency to my pom.xml:


After all is in place I can run the RunAllUnitTests class and all selected tests runs

Tested on Spring Boot v2.3.8, IntelliJ v2020.3 and JUnit v5 with JUnitPlattform v1.2.0
