Just found out about it today from a note on TheServerSide.com

More about TestMaker at PushToTest.com

If you've used it, how would you compare it to other tools like Canoo WebTest or Fitnesse?

I use TestMaker... everyday... but perhaps I'm prejudiced being the author. hehe

If you have questions about TestMaker feel free to post them here and I'll try to reply. The PushToTest Web site has a lot of information and case studies as well.

And my new book "Java Testing and Design" (http://thebook.pushtotest.com) covers the test methodology, techniques, and use cases.

Hope this helps.

Hi Frank,

Welcome to JavaRanch! I downloaded your book and started going through it. I can't speak for Maggie Movius but I like what I've read so far. I kind of skipped over most of the first chapter until I got to the Homogeneity/Heterogeneity Rules and the Language of Bugs sections.

One question: What exactly is the "Evil Twin Vice Presidents Problem"? It's only alluded to in that section of the book where you write: "...consider the company where management responsibility for software development and quality assurance is in one group and responsibility for running the datacenter is in the other group... When it exists, everything slows down, schedules go unmet, and feelings get hurt..."

Where/how do the Evil Twin Vice Presidents fit in this scenario and how exactly do they contribute to the problem and impact the ability to deliver successful software?

I have a pretty good idea of the dynamics of this type of situation, having worked on a government project that involved two agencies "working together" but I'd like to know more about the details behind what you wrote.
