3 The Test Design Tool

The test design tool is the test designer's primary interface to the test catalog and the clue extractor. In this tool, the designer chooses which clues to use, and which to ignore. The designer can update the test catalog with new idioms, and choose which suggested idioms to apply. When an idiom applies but there is no assocatied library code, the test design tool presents the designer with descriptions and helpful callouts describing the general test idiom and what techniques will be helpful in testing it.
