Testing CLIPS applications with TextTest

I was recently re-introduced to TextTest - a tool for text-based functional testing. TextTest uses the same approach as is used to test CLIPS functionality and that has been suggested several times on the CLIPSESG mailing list for unit-testing CLIPS applications.

The benefits of using TextTest for your CLIPS testing is that you can automate the execution of the tests and that you get a nice summary of the differences between expected output and actual output. So if you're currently testing your application "manually" using the CLIPS Dialog window and a diff tool you should give TextTest a try. It may well save you some time.
