    55I was a Java developer for a number of years then I became interested in the world of software testing.  In general software testing is integrated very poorly into the software development lifecycle.  In fact it is often not integrated at all.

    7 Agile software development's philosophy of test early and test often requires creating flexible and maintainable test cases that grow with the functionality of the product.  Particularily when it comes to writing down manual test cases.  I think manual test cases are incredibly effective and important, but write them in a way that is flexible and engages the brain's of your test team.

    99Don't write tests like this "do something->then next->end test case".  What happens when the GUI changes?  The higher level work flow or task/problem probably remained the same.  Changing a button location should NOT require any changes to a test case.
