Somkiat,
Do you mean testing tools for Java? If so, there are many extensions to junit. To use something like TestNG, I would need to have a very strong reason. The industry supports Junit and Ant very well in terms of tools.

In many ways, TestNG is what JUnit 4.0 (for JDK 5.0) would be. It will be interesting to see whether the community feels that JUnit 4.0 will be necessary, if the JDK 5.0 crowd already likes TestNG.

There is a discontinuity coming up, due to the radical changes in the Java language. I just hope our JUnit books don't become obsolete /too/ quickly. Fortunately, IBM will keep much of the world on JDK 1.4 for another 2 years.

I don't know TestNG very much, but it seems to me as if much of what it implements could be easily added to JUnit via extensions...

There's no question that we could reimplement TestNG as extensions to JUnit. To me, TestNG and NUnit are very similar in design. As I say, JUnit 4.0 would essentially be NUnit 2.x, and I'd be willing to write it, if Kent and Erich don't mind.

Have you asked? I'm sure they wouldn't mind. Kent is known to have gladly passed on the "ownership" of his open source projects to others who have more drive to develop them further.

I have asked Kent, but received no reply. Sometimes he just takes a while to respond.
