A JUnit Rule to Conditionally Ignore Tests

junit-logo

I always believed that using @Ignore to deactivate tests is a bad idea. Except, maybe as one way to put tests that fail intermittently into quarantine to attend to them later (as Martin Fowler describes it here). This bears the danger that the test suite decays as more and more tests keep getting ignored and forgotten. Therefore you should have ...

Unit Testing Tip: Create Descriptive Tests

junit-logo

The feedback they give you should be so clear you don’t even need to fire up the debugger and step one by one through the code to inspect your local variables. Why?

junit-logo

A couple of years ago I wrote about JUnit Parameterized Tests. One of the things I didn’t like about them was that JUnit named the invidividual test cases using numbers, so if they failed you had no idea which test parameters caused the failure. The following Eclipse screenshot will show you what I mean:             ...
