About configurations and testing

From time to time I have to stop and add a new library or resource in existing projects that introduce new configuration parameters. At those times I get faced with some difficulties from preexisting context. Yesterday I had to stop and review all the configurations files and all test profiles.

A good practice when building a project is introduce a some profiles/tags/whatever to separate the environment configurations and have one specific for the tests. And sadly I’ve been seen a lot of projects that simply doesn’t use this features.

This is just a statement to observe this as a good practice and ad it to the technical debt list for future improvement besides just correct it.
