Subject Re: Convention on dropping tests under the test framework
Date Mon, 11 Dec 2006 18:23:11 GMT
I thought about this a little more and have some ideas about what I'd  
like..... I dunno if this is remotely possible.

- keep the test app and test code close together in svn.  It's going  
to be a lot easier to work with a single test if these are close  
together, rather than like the testsupport stuff that is far from the  
tests that use it.

- make it easy to run the tests on a single app... so there's an easy  
way to build the test app, start up a server, and run the tests for  
that app.

- make it relatively quick to run all the tests.... which I think  
means starting a server, then for each app, deploying, running tests,  
and undeploying.  My current understanding of what we have now is  
that the server is going to be started and stopped for each app if  
we've set things up for my second requirement :-)
