Good blog

Really nice summary that automated testing is more than a green bar...

Testing is about the results. Sometimes a green bar is enough to tell you. Sometimes it provides you with information about change, it is up to the tester to interpret the results as "change" or "bug".

We have both on our project. Junit green bars fro developers. Automated tests that mark up spreadsheet values for testers (Red for different, white for the same).

The pattern of Red and White often reveal where the change or problem has occurred and allow the testers to quickly interact with developers and business people to determine if it is a bug or a change in the system.

We should probably get Jonathan out to visit our project. We can share experiences.
