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. [ March 11, 2002: Message edited by: Michael Matola ]
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.
