There are many software development blogs out there, but many of them don't publish testing articles on a regular basis.
Also, I have noticed that some software developers don't read blogs written by software testers.
That is a shame because I think that we can learn a lot from them.
That is why I decided to create a newsletter that shares the best testing articles which I found during the last week.
Let's get started.
- Changes in Selenium WebDriver 3.1.0, 3.2.0, 3.3.0 and 3.3.1 for Java identifies the changes of Selenium n WebDriver 3.1.0, 3.2.0, 3.3.0 and 3.3.1. If you are using Selenium, this blog post can be useful to you.
- Running End-to-End Tests With Maven is a free sample lesson of my Test With Spring course, and it explains how you can run end-to-end tests in your local development environment by using Maven.
- Stubbing and Mocking with Mockito 2 and JUnit is a quite comprehensive tutorial that explains how you can create mocks and stubs with Mockito 2. Also, since this tutorial provides a crash course in mocking and stubbing, you can read this blog post even if you are not familiar with these techniques.
The Really Valuable Stuff
- A Mob Testing Experience tells the story of a single mob testing workshop and provides a few tips that help you to get the most out of your own mob testing workshops.
- More troubles with test data is an excellent post that describes the challenges that you might face when you try to write end-to-end tests for a real-life application. Even though the author doesn't claim that he has found the silver bullet, he explains the problems his team is facing and does have a clear plan how to solve them. It will be interesting to see if (and how) he can solve his problems.
- Unit testing, Lean Startup, and everything in-between is a very thoughtful blog post that tries to find an answer to the question: why do we test our software?
