And what may sound like “Captain Obvious speaking”, it’s good to be reminded of some things that can potentially waste time. So, when you run the tests, ...

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-logo

Working as a consultant I still meet quite often programmers, who have at most a vague understanding of JUnit and its proper usage.
