XP or unit testing

I was just wondering if anyone else thought that we should have a Extreme Programming or unit testing Group?

There's the Process forum that includes XP in its scope.
Refactoring/unit testing are often discussed in the OO, Patterns, UML, and Refactoring forum.

There is another thread discussing issue on JUnit forum.
Regarding the forum JUnit questions should be put, someone(including Junilu) suggested the IDE forum, Michael Matola thought either the refactoring or process forum should be appropriate, Thomas just insisted the jakarta forum. What different ideas!
Do a search on the whole forum. There is more astonishing thing!
Maybe we really need a separate JUnit or unit testing forum.

junit seems to be the pre-occupation of XP'ers... who seem to spend a lot of time talking about Kent Beck's new 'Test Driven Development' book. But clearly junit is only a subset of XP. Lots of people have starting talking about junit and 'test first' approaches in the last year or so (at least they have in my dept.) I have used Junit quite recently, it's not a trivial topic. My guess is that it may well deserver a forum of it's own.

IMHO, there are a couple of forums where questions about JUnit would be appropriate:
  • IDE and other tools - for questions about setting up and basic usage
  • Process, XP, UP, etc. - for questions about how it relates to XP and Test-first programming


  • I don't feel that JUnit questions belong in the Jakarta forum because JUnit is not a Jakarta/Apache project even though Cactus, which is, is a JUnit extension. JUnit is actually a SourceForge project; has been for some time now.
    As for having it's own forum, I don't think the volume of traffic is enough to justify that.
    BTW, JUnit is currently in the lead in votes for JDJ's award for "Best Testing Tool"

    Maybe we should make a forum called "Testing" ??
    And maybe it is time to rename the process forum to "XP and Agile Processes"?

    testing forum seems to be very great idea. i have a suggestion , if we can have forum of software engineering itself , where apart from testing all the issues like configuration management , software project management , software quality etc. can be discussed under one roof. just a thought. what do you think ?
    renaming of process forum . why ? let the forum be the gateway for discussing all kinds of processes ( lightweight or heavyweight ). xp , rup , agile , scrum , rapid technologies can be discussed under process itself.
    if the intention is to have specific forum for XP & agile methodologies , then what about new forum for xp itself ? what do you think Sir Paul Wheaton ? offcourse what other ranchers think ?

    I don't think there is any need for a separate XP forum.
