Tester tools

Having been introduced to the tools available to developers has made me more aware of the inadequacy of the tools provided to testers. Subversion, Eclipse, MyLyn, Emma, PMD, and Git to mention a few of the tools that I've recently used. Git isn't quite so far along as the others, but it looks to be a great version control system. Using Eclipse as the development environment provides integration to SVN for version control, MyLyn for task management, Emma for code coverage and PMD for static code review. Test tools seem to be targeting separate solutions. Integration within the testing space is uncommon and exceedingly rare with development.
