Or where should I put my JUnit questions?

Junilu and Jason Adam were suggesting the IDE forum.

But wouldn't either the refactoring or process forum also be appropriate for non-setup questions? After all, JUnit's a tool for refactoring, test-first programming, XP, and so on.

Why not in the jakarta forum? Most of the questions will be about how to use it while the other forums mentioned are more about process. The jakarta forum would probably be the best place for JUnit.

The idea of creating a testing forum makes sense, but it seems to be one of those things that nobody talks about much - so a forum on the topic would be pretty dead. If we have a few people that would be interested in breathing life into it ....

All the propositions make sense!
Not so long ago, I wanted to ask a question on JUnit but I did not know where to put it. I saw a thread on it in the "UML Refactoring forum", so I put it there. Then I read about the giveaway book, whose title contains "JUnit", and it was given away in the Jakarta forum. If I had not read that announcement, I would never had taken a look at this forum, since I didn't know at that time what Jakarta was. Moreover Jakarta is in the subchapter "Products" while JUnit is not a product.
So, Paul, if you take a look now in the Jakarta forum, you will notice that there is some buzz around Junit. But how long it will that's the question?
So, the question remains opened

i think junit discussion is more appropriate in the process forum only , where XP discussion is going on .
As paul has always said " no dead forums " , this danger looms in separate forum. plus , i was also surprised to see giveaway in jakarta forum. only cactus & ant are from jakarta project. i still suspect how they help in XP ? rather which aspects ?
still , the giveway with these tools should be great.
I agree. Here's the link:
