Some more unit test tips

junit-logo

In my previous post I showed some tips on unit testing JavaBeans. In this blog entry I will give two more tips on unit testing some fairly common Java code, namely utility classes and Log4J logging statements. Testing Utility classes If your utility classes follow the same basic design as the ones I tend to write, they consist of a ...

JUnit Rules

junit-logo

Introduction In this post I would like to show an example of how to use JUnit Rule to make testing easier. Recently I inherited a rather complex system, which not everything is tested. And even the tested code is complex. Mostly I see lack of test isolation. (I will write a different blog about working with Legacy Code). One of ...

JUnit in a Nutshell: Test Runners

junit-logo

The fourth chapter of my multi-part tutorial about JUnit testing essentials explains the purpose of the tool’s exchangable test runners architecture and introduces some of the available implementations. The ongoing example enlarges upon the subject by going through the different possibilities of writting parameterized tests. Since I have already published an introduction to JUnit Rules, I decided to skip the ...

jUnit: Rules

junit-logo

Rules add special handling around tests, test cases or test suites. They can do additional validations common for all tests in the class, concurrently run multiple test instances, set up resources before each test or test case and tear them down afterwards. The rule gets complete control over what will done with the test method, test case or test suite ...

JUnit in a Nutshell: Test Isolation

Working as a consultant I still meet quite often programmers, who have at most a vague understanding of JUnit and its proper usage. This gave me the idea to write a multi-part tutorial to explain the essentials from my point of view. Despite the existence of some good books and articles about testing with the tool, maybe the hands-on approach ...

Parameterized Test Runner in JUnit

junit-logo

We all have written unit tests where in a single test tests for different possible input-output combinations. Lets look how its done by taking a simple fibonacci series example. The below code computes the fibonacci series for number of elements mentioned:             import java.math.BigInteger; import java.util.ArrayList; import java.util.List; public class Fibonacci{ public List<Integer> getFiboSeries(int numberOfElements) ...

This is Stuff: jUnit: Dynamic Tests Generation

junit-logo

Dynamic tests generation is useful when you need to run the same set of tests on many different input values or configurations. It can be achieved either using parametrized tests or using theories. Theories are valuable when you have a bunch of data to be used as parameters and want to run tests on all their combinations. You get less ...

JUnit seems to be the most popular testing tool for developers within the Java world. So it is no wonder that there have been written some good books about this topic. But by earning a living as consultant I still meet quite often programmers, who at most have a vague understanding of the tool and its proper usage. Hence I ...

Understanding JUnit’s Runner architecture

junit-logo

Some weeks ago I started creating a small JUnit Runner (Oleaster) that allows you to use the Jasmine way of writing unit tests in JUnit. I learned that creating custom JUnit Runners is actually quite simple. In this post I want to show you how JUnit Runners work internally and how you can use custom Runners to modify the test ...
