For very large applications or systems, it can take a very long time to run the full set of automated tests. In this case, it is common to select a subset of tests to run as part of the daily or intraday builds, and to only run the full set of tests nightly or weekly. 42 CHAPTER 4: PRACTICE 1: AUTOMATED TESTING Kinds of Tests There are many different kinds of tests. In this section we present the common categories of tests. Keep in mind that the dividing line between these categories is not always sharp, and there can be overlap and gray areas.

What choices lie between these two extremes? The best approach to take, if you can, is to try both alternatives and eventually choose the one that best meets the system’s needs. This is called set-based design. With set-based design you simultaneously pursue multiple solutions, eventually choosing the best one. A classic example of this approach was the design of the Toyota Prius. The requirements for the Prius did not specify a hybrid engine; they only stated that the car should get exceptionally good gas mileage.
