Re: Unit and integration are ambiguous names for tests

Thanks Todd. Yes, that's basically what this is about; finding the various levels of public interface. You can certainly think of a web API as being the public interface for a container, but if I look at my own API tests, they also tend to involve the database too. And this is why I didn't include the container level - the majority of these wider-reaching tests don't tend to execute code in just a single container. This obviously isn't always the case, but it seems easier to simply label all of that stuff as "system tests". I can see how you would easily define "container tests" if they were a useful thing to explicitly label though.
