"It's up to you - often when we use Selenium we use a unit test framework to wrap the cases, and so either each class or each method can be a test using the Test annotation, for example from JUnit: import org.junit.Test; @Test public class…"

"Thank you for all of your responses. The topic has diverged somewhat. To be clear I am not in a position to really police using TestLink or any other tool. I just support it in the following ways: I administer new users as they sign up I maintain a…"

""Do we really need test case management? Unfortunately it seems like we do." Well, it might seem like you do.   It will certainly seem like you do if you choose to model and represent testing as test cases.  Yet that doesn't…"

About Me:
I have been working on, testing, developing, breaking, engineering, architecting, designing, and creating software for over twenty years. Seven and a half of them have been professional years. I have been in school, participating in Computer Science related activities for seven of my twenty years. I have ready thousands of books, essays, tutorials, forums, blog posts, and reports on various subjects related to all aspects of the IT industry. I have worked with eight companies, on five open community projects run by others, more than ten open source projects of my own, with hundreds of coworkers both domestically and abroad, and on several contracts both of my own initiation and because others wanted my help. Also, I participate casually in four local programming language and API user groups, a couple of global API user groups, and have attended Microsoft Tech Ed, and Agile Roots conferences. My point is that I have worked a fairly large percentage of my life on software, and I have experienced a lot of different economic situations, team and solo environments, and software communities. And in more than eighty percent of my overall experience, the resulting software has been unacceptably buggy, politics play a greater role as to when software is complete than discrete quality does, programmers don't have time and in many cases don't have the experience to engineer software properly, and management, of both software activities and people, is poorly executed, in part due to lack of understanding the problems being solved, the solutions to those problems, and also and again due to lack of experience.
