QA Testing Faces two ways

When QA is testing an application in an XP environment they serve at least two masters. For development they verify existing functionality to see that it conforms to the requirements and integrates with the rest of the application. For customers QA examines the application for missing requirements.

A couple of tools in the hands of a good tester are:
1) Exploratory testing
2) Regression testing

I'm trying to adapt a fit style testing harness to our project. In essence I realized I'm creating a mini macro language for PAS. It does imports, a small number of functions through the facade and UI (ala jWebUnit) and then a small number of asserts.

Key to success is keeping it simple/small. It might be maintainable. We'll see.
