    I enjoyed reading the Beautiful Code book many years back and for me Beautiful Testing gave the same pleasure Experts explaining how they figured out some fascinating problemsHow does one go about testing a random number generator? Even when we come to grips with the type of randomness we're after what do we do to verify that the random number always lies in the range 0 1? Writing RNGs feel like an exception to the rule about always writing testable codeThen again how do we test an antivirus scanner? The uality attributes are completely different from the run of the mill business or consumer application that I am familiar with And so it was fascinating to see the plethora of tools the ClamAV team ended up throwing at the problem I would not have thought it practical to deal with the mass of resulting output that Tomasz Kojm assures us can be put to good use so long as we have considerable patienceThe book is dated though so I'm going to rate it just three stars The practical stuff in here isn't very practical anyThe ideas aged well though Somehow Nandigama's ideas on change centric testing have not ended up being built into test tooling Test management tools really should provide predictive traceability for changes and about the health of the test suite
