(OT) Perl version of DevNotes

on Feb 09, 2009 at 19:44 UTC ( #742549=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
dragonchild has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

DevNotes is this ColdFusion thing where you can have little stickynotes / PostIt™ notes on an application. The purpose is so that you can code something up and your client can play with it and add stickynotes on his end. Then, you can see them when you look on yours.

I've been asked by $bosses[0] to see if there's something like this using a Perl backend. I couldn't find anything, but maybe someone here has . . . ?

My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

[marinersk]: choroba++
[choroba]: it's a long running test, so it's normally skipped unless an env var is set
[choroba]: nobody has been bothered to set the variable in the last 3 years
[marinersk]: sub newtest{my $expected_result = &target('foo'); my $actual_result = &target('foo'); if ($actual_result eq $expected_result) { &tdd_success(); } else { &tdd_fail(); } } # Test works after three years!
[choroba]: or nobody bothered...
[choroba]: The problem was bigger, as the test tried to call a method that didn't exist anymore
[marinersk]: :: ducking ::
[choroba]: because, someone renamed the method, but didn't notice it was used in the test, as the test was skipped
[marinersk]: Well, if the method doesn't exist, it would be hard to pass the test.
[choroba]: later, someone removed the new method, as all its usage places were safe, but didn't notice the test still used the old name
