Hey Guys-
I'm starting a little proof of concept effort and wanted to bounce some ideas off everyone.
I remeber not too long ago when unit testing "was not cool" in the developer ranks. The advent of JUnit has changed much of that. I have started to incorporate it's usage more and more into my team's development processes.
JUnit's lacks a few things however wehn we start talking about big projects. The first is the concept of a test repository where I can associate say a subsystem with it's related unit tests. Or a way to track the history of pass fail results for a certain component.
A lot of 3rd party tools provide this and I'd like to try some integration between the JUnit framework and Rational's TestManager as a starting point (since I have a license for it ).
I'd like to post a few questions as seperate threads as I go through this and get everyone's thoughts on approach. If nothing else, it puts a little more activity on this board

Most projects I've seen have a test package for each Java package. If your subsystems correspond to Java packages, this should address the need to map between a unit and its tests.
