Actually, we're not talking about Sun's test suite. :-) But now that you
mention it...

Could Sun's tests be used as a kind of regression tests as well? Then
their tests could be the only black-box test suite we'll need!

There is already a small unit test suite in the CVS. But it haven't been
kept up to date with recent changes in the drivers, and it's a bit hard
to use (thus the need for a how-to).
The tests use the tool JUnit (, that is originally
intended for one-class-at-a-time testing. On their site is a lot of good
texts about this kind of unit testing.
