Yes, I'm a massochist. But I'm also a control freak (note the C&H citation, that strip is my favourite instance of C&H).

I thought we needed more confidence in our business logic framework so I volunteered to write a bunch of unit tests. Once we have a good suite of tests we'll be able to make changes to our growing codebase with more confidence, and it will serve as interesting documentation as well.

I'm reading Programmers Love Writing Tests and the JUnit Cookbook today.

Wish me luck! I'll use this thread to track my progress. If you subscribe to the site's list you can follow this thread easily.
