"Testing is a fundamental component of the software development
process -- or at least it should be. As a developer, I know
firsthand how difficult it can be to discipline oneself to test as
you develop. Honestly, testing can be downright boring. To me,
there's nothing more tedious than writing test cases, defining the
expected outputs, debugging the test cases themselves, and then
actually running the tests."
"When I look for a testing tool, I want one that melds with the
nature of testing. Anything less will fail like a New Year's
resolution; you'll stick with it for a while, but inevitably you'll
revert to your old bad habits."
"As a developer, I want a tool that supports unit and regression
testing. The tool must provide feedback quickly, easily, and
reliably. Honestly, when evaluating a testing tool, I look for
instant gratification. ParaSoft's Jtest for Linux fulfills these
requirements -- and then adds some surprises of its own."
