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 that clearly separates them from the manual "System Integration Testing" phase of a project where real instances of the integrated systems are used.
Among some colleagues, we brainstormed some suggestions:
- Automated Integration Tests
- Stubbed Integration Tests
- Sandboxed Integration Tests
- Localized Integration Tests
- LINK Tests
All these give a good indication of the tests that are being done. I think "Stubbed Integration Tests" is most catchy and descriptive. So I will use that until someone comes up with a better idea.
