Unit Test Smells

The term smell was taken from the refactoring discussion. There a code smell comes from an ugly piece of source code that should be restructured (refactored) as soon as possible. Typical code smells are duplication of code, unneccessary indirections etc.

The term smell can be transferred to a lot of other “domains”, e.g. to the wide area of testing. This article is a first attempt to collect smells for the area of unit tests.
