Mostly that, yes. Like I said, ad hoc testing.
Like I said, no actual issues or real problems.
There are times when a specific area of the AUT needs to be tested. With the auto-suite feature in place, this would be easy to do. Right now, I might choose to run a full suite, or a slightly smaller one, but either way, there might be tests in those suites that are not relevant.
The best software solutions share many things in common. One of those things is immediacy – the ability to effect an action immediately. Regular conventional suites involve planning and maintenance. Auto-suites would allow the tester to shoot from the hip, no planning required.
Repeat: The auto-suites should NOT be saved. They should be built at the time the execution is started and then thrown away.
Note: I’m not sure what the best name is for this feature - perhaps others can add to this list:
