The most compelling feature is that it supports code completion for cloudstack API, very easy
to write test case in Eclipse environment. And we are setting up a test infrastructure, which
will execute all the test cases written for this framework.

If you like to work on it, that will be great!

While I like the functional/integration tests, as you note we have
500+ currently. Those tests also take many hours to run at present.
Unit tests should be something fast, a sanity check, and we only have
25 right now for the entire code base, so while I like
func/integration tests, I'd really like for our unit tests to be
runnable on every commit, and provide some decent level of coverage so
that we have a bit of confidence that code works well, and provide
good feedback to folks on whether their commit passes the sniff test.
