"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."
