Article Source: http://geekswithblogs.net/c... BizUnit is defined as a "Framework for Automated Testing of Distributed Systems." I've never seen a catchy label to describe what type of tests we create using this framework. They are not really "Unit Tests" that's for sure. "Integration Tests" might be a good definition. However, I want a label ......

Article Source: http://geekswithblogs.net/c... Often it is handy to organise BizUnit tests into test lists. This way longer running tests and edge case tests can be removed from check-in builds keep them running a bit more quickly.
