Maybe this speaks of my programming ignorance, but what exactly constitutes a "test harness"? I hear this phrase bandied about, but I'm not sure I have a solid grasp of what this actually means.
I hope this isn't hijacking the thread, but I would really like a better understanding. I know with my scripts, I have modularized them where I have html elements for each page of my app in a separate file, then I have methods in another, test data in another (eventually I'll use an Excel file).
