Subject Re: Naming unit tests and integration tests
Date Mon, 05 Feb 2018 19:55:20 GMT
These seem like sensible ideas to me.  I especially don't like tests 
named after bug numbers.  I do like a pointer to relevant tickets in 
test comments/javadocs though.

We also have DUnitTest.  Some designation in the name that it's using 
the dunit infrastructure is often useful to me.  Having to open a file 
to see that it's a DistributedTest vs a regular unit test could make 
life more difficult.  Putting them in their own source tree would help 
with that.
