Test Suites in Salesforce

Running specific set of test classes is a complex one and it’s hard to run them one by one. Salesforce has come up with new feature called Test Suite. Test Suite acts as container, and using this feature you can add a set of test classes and run them together. You can add up to a maximum of 200 test classes per TestSuite.

Specify Run Parameters: 

You can specify run parameter on Settings before running the test Suites.  This functionality allows you to stop your test run from executing new tests after a given number of tests fail. You can set the failure threshold to an integer value from 0 to 1,000,000. This integer value sets the maximum number allowable test failures. A value of 0 causes the test run to stop if any failure occurs. A value of 1 causes the test run to stop after the second failure, and so on.
