Simple Java Unit Test Framework

This is part of JavaUnitTestChallengeSolved -- DonWells
MS J++ was a complete disaster. It would not compile anything. I wanted J++ 1.1 because it works with JDK 1.0.2 for which I already had a unit TestingFramework. Anyway, I did also have Symantec Visual Caf´┐Ż 2.5a. That took some getting used to, but after I had figured out how to get around those darn helpful code generating wizards, I was able to get some things done. Turns out that it is just as well since I could not find my old unit TestingFramework anyway. So now I look at JUnit written by KentBeck and ErichGamma. There are some good ideas here, but it is more than I need so I decide to just write my own version. I can steal a couple things though. My version has limitations but it is just as much as I need and no more.

The way this thing works is you write extensions (subclasses) of the class Test. You include a run() method that is invoked when the test is run. You call should(boolean, String) to test if things went well. Then you put an instance of that test into an array of tests in the method addTests() in the TestGUI class.

Included are three tests that test the framework. One each pass, fail, abort. A fail is when the test ran but the should() messages show a problem. An abort is when something causes a Java runtime error. When you run the framework on these three tests it should look like something like this except this version has two run buttons instead of one I think.
