What's the best way to handle multiple test writers concurrently working on the same test project in Jubula?
For example, should all our Jubula instances be pointing to a central db that contains the project. If multiple users are working on this project and interacting with this central database at the same time are there any race-condition issues?

Alternatively, should we be working on separate db instances, exporting our projects, and then manually merging these project files? This seems really messy. From what I can see you can only export the whole project. It would be great to only export a test suite, and also be able to export without including test summary data.

What's would you suggest?

Jubula was designed to allow multi user work. All testers for a project should use the same db.

Jubula does locking when testers attempt to modify the same tests. This is done on a fine granularity. Editing is exclusively for Test Cases, Test Suites, Test Jobs, Names and Project Properties, i.e. once a user starts editing one of these entities other editing attempts will get a message telling that this entity is currently edited by someone else. Once the entity is saved others may start making changes (on an updated version).

Exporting/importing parts of a project is really difficult to implement. There are lots of constraint within a project which would break on a partial export.
