Testing with Junit is published by Packt Publishing in October 2015. This book has 160 pages in English, ISBN-13 978-1782166603.
JUnit has matured to become the most important tool when it comes to automated developer tests in Java. Supported by all IDEs and build systems, it empowers programmers to deliver software features reliably and efficiently. However, writing good unit tests is a skill that needs to be learned; otherwise it’s all too easy to end up in gridlocked development due to messed up production and testing code. Acquiring the best practices for unit testing will help you to prevent such problems and lead your projects to success with respect to quality and costs.
This book explains JUnit concepts and best practices applied to the test first approach, a foundation for high quality Java components delivered in time and budget.
From the beginning you’ll be guided continuously through a practically relevant example and pick up background knowledge and development techniques step by step. Starting with the basics of tests organization you’ll soon comprehend the necessity of well structured tests and delve into the relationship of requirement decomposition and the many-faceted world of test double usage. In conjunction with third-party tools you’ll be trained in writing your tests efficiently, adapt your test case environment to particular demands and increase the expressiveness of your verification statements. Finally, you’ll experience continuous integration as the perfect complement to support short feedback cycles and quality related reports for your whole team.
The tutorial gives a profound entry point in the essentials of unit testing with JUnit and prepares you for test-related daily work challenges.
