I can't think of a utility that i could use java to build that would help facilitate a tester.....
maybe some kind of tracking system to keep track of test cases,etc
any ideas?

What level testing are you looking at?

JUnit (and the other *unit tools) are very good for developers testing individual classes for results that match very technical design expectations. You can collect tests into suites to run and report a bunch at once.

Fit/FitNesse are good tools for users and developers testing larger parts of the system for results that match business expectations. Again you can build up any number of tests into test suites.

There are many other tools that fit where these don't quite ... unit testing for XML or HTTP, Selenium for user interface, etc.

Any of that sound useful?

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
