Different kinds of unit testing activities are used in practice. Organised unit testing (regression testing or test-first activities) are very popular in commercial practice, while ad-hoc (interactive) testing is popular in small scale and experimental development environments and teaching situations. These testing styles are usually kept separate. This paper introduces a design and implementation of a system that combines these testing styles to create a tool for new testing activities that both communities – professional and educational – may benefit from.
