in thread Neither system testing nor user acceptance testing is the repeat of unit testing (OT)

"... to determine what tests you need to run, your interface isn't correctly designed."

There is a big hole in this logic. Testing should not and cannot depend on the correctness of anything else, regardless whether it is the interface design or the actual code. There is simply no dependency, we don't expect it, and we avoid it. The whole purpose of testing is to find faults with the application, from requirements to design, to coding.

If we assume that the interface design is great, or depend on that, then the entire purpose of the testing is defeated right there.

Corion had a meeting with some startup today. They have a very interesting DB proxy product, but their tech stack is really, really weird. They use the Pg wire protocol but not the Pg libraries to handle it. They support Pg SQL syntax, but don't use ...
[Corion]: ... the Pg parser (or so they claim).
[Corion]: Also, they rolled their own user management instead of supporting LDAP for user/role management, but that just shows that they're new in the enterprise market :)
Corion also just now realizes they didn't leave business cards.
