About

It is insanity to keep doing things the same way and expect them to improve. Any program is useful only when it is functional; hence, before applying complex tools, patterns, or APIs to your production code, checking software functionality is must. Automated JUnit tests help you verify your assumptions continuously, detect side effects quickly, and also help you save time.

This book will provide the skills you need to successfully build and maintain meaningful JUnit test cases. You will begin with how to use advanced JUnit 4 features, improve code coverage, automate JUnit tests, monitor code quality, write JUnit tests for the database and web tier refactor legacy code, mock external dependencies using Mockito, and write testable code using test-driven development. By sequentially working through the steps in each chapter, you will quickly master the advanced JUnit features.

Features
  • Create meaningful and maintainable automated unit tests using advanced JUnit features and the Mockito framework
  • Build an automated continuous integration environment to get real-time feedback on broken code, code coverage, code quality, and integration issues
  • Covers best practices and presents insights on architecture and designs to create faster and reliable unit testing environments
