Effective automated test case generation available ?
Has anyone used tools the assist in generating test cases (you know - the wordy descriptive kind that most people hate to write ?)
For example, I've heard the Rational Rose offers a product that includes support for generating use cases (assuming you follow their methodology).
From my experience, I can't imagine any such tool could really replace or greatly complement the human analysis of requirements and development of pertinent test cases, but I'd be interested in hearing of anyone else's positive experiences in this area.

We have done this in a pattern-based development environment. With a high level of code reuse, test scripts were associated to specific patterns. You can read the full article here:
Let me know if you have questions.
