      Description

      Modern processors these days have upwards of 4 cores, some even have the ability to run multiple threads per core. When grails runs tests (unit and integration) it should have the ability to run them in parallel in order to better utilize the CPU resources available which should speed up the running of the tests.

      JUnit 4.6 provides ways of doing this that could potentially be leveraged. See the first two items in the release notes here: http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=675664&group_id=15278
