If you’ve been doing unit testing for a while, you’re probably happy. And you’re probability facing a new set of problems. Unit testing maintenance is a headache.
But more than that – we have all kind of tests: unit, integration, acceptance, all jumbled up together. We throw them all into one giant suite and expect quick feedback.
It’s time to take stock and take action. We’ll take a look how to overhaul our tests, depending on metrics we can track and analyze. We’ll do some risk analysis to see what to keep, and might even take some extreme measures. Maybe even decide to remove tests (God help us!!!) from our suite. We’ll optimize test runs, look at test organization approaches, continuous integration cycle optimization methods and make sure we get feedback as quickly as possible.
Having a suite of tests is just the beginning. Having a great suite of tests is much more effective.
