There's been some renewed interest in the possibility of unit testing in my
organization, and some folks have brought up XSpec as a possible avenue
towards more robust testing during development. We leverage a fairly large
number of Java extensions, our pipeline is all Java, and we've extended Saxon
a fair bit as well. For these reasons, I am having a hard time envisioning how
to integrate XSpec. We already have quite a large array of regression tests
and a good testing team, but the concept of catching regressions during
development is appealing.

What are you all doing these days for testing? Are there large scale
implementations of XSpec in the wild with complex pipelines? I can't find too
many examples on the net. I found a brief discussion of this topic several
years ago on this listserv, but I wondered if there were any developments/good
experiences since then.

Thanks in advance!
