ZF-417: New testing harness (ZFTestManager) fixes several issues with current testing framework
More details here, plus lets discuss on the below page http://framework.zend.com/wiki/x/KhQ
Issues noted during test running and test development:
Cannot run isolated tests This is important for finding dependancy issues.. also speeds up development time when trying to develop tests.
New test writers overwhelmed when there are a lack of standard practices specific to the Zend Framework Hard to follow when some writers add tests to suites and some add suites to suites, also, there is a better chance of changes being blown away by developers need to alter upper level AllTests file to include a new suite. Also, there is a better chance of tests getting lost in the shuffle, currently, 2 test files exists that never get run.
Need for a better configuration, better suite orgainization
