Proboscis is a Python test framework that extends Python's built-in unittest
module and Nose with features from TestNG.
TestNG is a testing framework inspired from JUnit and NUnit but introducing
some new functionalities that make it more powerful and easier to use.
* Uses decorators instead of naming conventions.
* Allows for TestNG style test methods, in which a class is initialized once,
as an alternative to using class fields.
* Allows for explicit test dependencies and skipping of dependent tests on
* Runs xUnit style clases if desired or needed for backwards compatibility.
* Uses Nose if available (but doesn't require it), and works with many of
its plugins.
* Runs in IronPython and Jython (although if you're targeting the JVM you
should consider using TestNG instead).
This package provides the Python 2.x module.
