Learn how to improve your Java coding skills using unit testing. Despite it's name, unit testing is really a coding technique, not a testing technique. Unit testing is done by programmers, for programmers. It's primarily for our benefit: we get improved confidence in our code, better ability to make deadlines, less time spent in the debugger, and less time beating on the c ...more

Very good intro to unit testing. Talks at great length about the need for tests and the advantages of designing for testability. It has a very nice tutorial on using JUnit and even briefly mentions the use of mock objects.

It is filled with very good pieces of advice. Many of them are arranged into catchy mnemonics. But they often feel forced and some are so long that it becomes hard to recall what they stand for. This reminded me of a similar device that I keep hearing: DRY - Don't Repeat Yourse

A worthwhile read for someone looking for a solid introduction to both JUnit and unit testing in general.

This book focuses on practicalities, giving a solid basis and solid reasons for unit testing as a development practice. It makes it clear that unit testing should not be the only form of testing, but should be the lowest foundation upon which a solid testing plan is built.

The text is interspersed with examples and exercises for the reader to complete and appendixes provide a guide to installi

Pragmatic Unit Testing is a book about testing for developers. The content is appropriate for developers who do not have much experience testing and for developers who do unit test their code but do not have formal training in testing.

The book describes the purpose of unit tests, how to write them, and what makes a good unit test. They give lots of examples to help developers figure out what kind of things are good to test and how to test them. Although a lot of the information can be found in g
Este libro pertenece a una serie de títulos en donde se van exponiendo varias herramientas de programación; en este tomo, se revisa JUnit que es un framework de pruebas para Java.

Además de mostrar de manera concisa cómo se usa JUnit, se exponen varios consejos y aspectos del testing; de hecho, la mayor parte del libro trata de eso. En algunas partes, se pierde la continuidad de la exposición debido a la revisión de los argumentos, aunque nada grave si se vuelve al punto de partida del tema visto
Sandys Nunes
Ótimo livro para iniciantes em testes.
This book is another great book from the pragmatic programmers to help people get started with unit tests using junit. If you are already familiar with junit and writing unit tests, then there are a few tidbits of good information. This book is definitly more for beginners.
