We have done that too.

We have also found creating a TestUtils class with all the constants defined
in a big Properties hash table useful.  Then we can parameterize the test
case via a test.properties file.  Admittedly, the main reason that we have
for doing this is that we write testcases that run against multiple
databases, each of which have different contents; so that idea might not be
desperately useful here.  However, we have often found that we can reuse
tests by putting them in the TestUtils class or a superclass TestCase.

Anyway, enough rambling...hope that helps! :)
