How should I track development and test time estimates/effort?

I'd like to be able to start using the time tracking capabilities in JIRA. But my concern is that I see no way to separate out the development vs. the test time. There is only one Original Estimate field - who should fill it out? Should it include both the development and test time? Is there any good way to capture dev and test effort independently? I'd really like to know how other groups do this - please share your experiences.

There are 2 plugins available in JIRA Extension Page which might be able to fulfill the requirement:

Developement vs. Test time effort independently:

You can either use jira reports or different transitions on the workflow and even different plugins:

I hope it helps you! :)
