While assertions of Design by Contract from Eiffel found its way into the language-definitions of Python and of Java SDK 1.4, current object-oriented languages do not make the concepts of unit-testing explicit in their definitions or meta-models. Not having support of unit-testing in a programming language makes it harder to compose and re-compose test-scenarios and tests. We propose, that an object-oriented language should include explicit concepts for example objects, example methods and instance-specific assertions. This concepts ease the composition of complex test-scenarios, they help to refactor the program with the tests and also to keep the duration of the tests as low and the coverage of the tests as high as possible.
