    A little outdated because the world as moved on to Mockito while the book talks about EasyMock and JMock and the world has moved on to Jenkins while the book talks about Hudson the book is still on Maven 2 while the world has moved on to Maven 3 and it talks about Selenium Remote Control which has already officially been deprecated in favor of Selenium Web Driver the Cactus project is no as of 2011 and not desiring to try and convert the examples to the new alternative Attic made that whole chapter a drag to get through and so on and so forth But still I am glad I got a chance to work through the book I learned a lot especially the differences between stubbing mocking and in container testing Too bad there isn't a next edition of this book out there yet A minor tidbit is that the pieces on Maven and CruiseControl eg have clearly not been proofread to match standard English American or British Finally the book really should have been titled Unit Testing in Action because of the number of various tools and techniues that are covered

    I really can't recommend this one It tried to go into too many tools at the expense of not really going into many of them in any depth As an overview of the general landscape it was adeuate but I'm afraid a lot of the knowledge is going to fade uickly

    Decided to read this one since it came with the Third Edition MEAP I should have known the book would be outdated by now honestly parts of it seem to have been outdated even 9 years ago but I hoped it would delve into JUnit 4 internals and given that a lot of our test codebase is still not migrated to JUnit 5 and probably won't be anytime soon I figured diving a bit deeper into the framework may not be too bad Unfortunately I found none of that here the book explores only the most basic concepts of JUnit and is otherwise spread pretty thin covering a multitude of frameworks that were a part of the testing ecosystem at the time Would have been a decent read when I started out 10 years ago but isn't really worth it now

    Just amazing While some guys saying that most of the tips currently are not relevant I should state that book gives you useful background for Java EE application testing therefore it must read for novice automation testers


  5. Orn Solmundsson Orn Solmundsson says:

    At the publishing year 2011 I would have given the book four or five stars because it is well written and covers a lot of material But now most of the chapters are obsolete and many of the test frameworks are retired

    Was good once but a relic now

    I don't know of any programmer that likes writing tests It's tedious and not much fun JUnit takes a bit of the pain away but it's still not much fun despite the authors' attempt to make it sound like fun But maybe they really think it is fun I don't want to presume to know their thoughts But for me it isn'tJUnit does make it a bit less tedious by providing a testing framework to plug in your tests And testing is necessary and the discipline to write good tests pays back dividends in code uality and confidence That's the textbook story but it rarely seems to happen in Real Life Time pressures always seem to come at the expense of things like testingThis book tries to show through examples how to use JUnit in many different kinds of testing scenarios It does a reasonable job of that but it does tend to gloss over some of the difficult aspects and comes off sounding a bit glib at times I would say it's a decent introduction to mid level book but I found it wasn't entirely satisfying Part of that may not be the books fault I really hate doing test code and while JUnit helps it's still pretty tedious for me I was hoping I'd get some insights that would allow me to view things differently That didn't happen I did learn a few things and that made it worthwhile but no real paradigm shifting insights occurred

    The first book which brings me to the world of Test Driven Development The first two chapters explains the benefits of writing test before implementing features the different between each kind of testing unit tests integration test functional test For the rest it tells about unit test techniue and using JUnit for representing

    I am starting to read unit testing and it is just the start Seems like a good pickI will update my comments as i read it

    Trying this book out as an introduction to testing with JUnit Review forthcoming
