Dear All,
is there a good reason to deploy a XSLT unit testing framework? I have
never seen any serious XSLT dev env where the XSLT unit testing was either
done religiously, or considered mandatory.  Other than a very religious
Java development team with strict Junit set up with Maven etc, who have
adopted XSLT into their dev env, who would now want to extend the same
ideologies to the XSLT world?  I have personally never used or utilized
practically any XSLT unit testing framework in any project and nor was
there any requirement to do so...

So considering we need to do this, I came across,
XSPEC, XUnit etc.. Xspec seems like a good one,  but doesnt look like a lot
of discussions are  happening in the community.. The Coverage feature
doesnt work ...
The class is not being maintained.

Cakupan, was very hard on my brains to read the manual.. Again something
that has been out there for a while and not sure it is still maintained /

Does anyone has any ideas on what options we have in the XML world for
XSL Unit Testing + Coverage Report

I tried posting to the Xspec community but no one bothered to answer my
questions , so I am inclined to think it is dead.

Somehow I am also inclined to think Coverage feature is a very
Java/C#/C/C++ paradigm... Doesnt make too much sense with the XSLT world?

Your inputs are valuable.
