Hi all,

I want to bring the black box testing issue a little bit forward. Some test
classes exist already for the excel and text file input and we need more and I
think we need more black box testing for the front end.

At the black box side we have possibilities to create test transformations and
test jobs and compare the results. And in parallel I'm just searching for a
GUI tester and already got some hints... have to check it (some are created
by a bachelor thesis and are not published yet but may be we could use

As the creation of test cases is a heavy job, too I would like to encourage
you to help with creating some. If we found a lot of volunteers (they do not
have to be Java programmes, just Kettle users with creative ideas of testing
a lot of szenarios) - let me know and I will organize this.

If we can divide the work to some more people this would be great - so I
would like to encourage you to adopt your favority step for creating test
cases. Let me know if you like to be part of this "adopt a step program" and
if you have a favority step.

I will pots this in parallel to the Kettle forum.

All the best,
