[zope2-tracker] [Bug 694986] Re: ZopeTestCase is missing ZODB connection isolation

Yes, the reason is: I learned about plone.testing only a few days ago
(also in relation to gocept.selenium, funnily enough), but that was
*after* I already had undertaken an extensive exploration inside
ZopeTestCase to find, let alone try and fix, this issue.

And yes, after filing this bug I was trying to compose a question to
zope-dev to the effect of "given my (excellent) impressions of
plone.testing, are there scenarios other than backwards-compatibility
with existing test suites in which ZopeTestCase is recommended over
plone.testing?" but hadn't managed to formulate that in a neutral way
yet (i.e. not inadvertently bashing ZopeTestCase).

So I guess this answers my question, thanks Hanno. :-) (feel free to
"wontfix" this bug if appropriate)

Where would be a good place to document this? The "Zope2 Developers
Guide"? It seems to me that
http://docs.zope.org/zope2/zdgbook/TestingAndDebugging.html doesn't
really talk about either test infrastructure option right now.

You received this bug notification because you are a member of Zope 2
Developers, which is subscribed to Zope 2.
