Thanks for your encourage, Kathey.

In my working on "convert ijConnName.sql to a ScriptTest junit test"[1],   I
was advised by Myrna that "Though tempting to convert this to a straight
junit test, where you have more control over the output, the name
(ijConnName) indicates this is a test intended to test the ij commands to
manage connections."

It seems that, straight junt test case is the first choice when converting,
its benefit is to get more control. ScriptTestCase is just suitable for
testing related to a specified field of ij. So maybe the converting based on
ScriptTestCase should focus on a limited scope, maybe primarily including
the sql scripts named containing a "ij".

What's your opinion?
