Java Testing Weekly 12 / 2018

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.

Technical Stuff

  • Bootiful Test Driven Development is an interesting post which explains how you can do TDD with Spring Boot. The best part of this blog post is that it provides step-by-step instructions which describe every change you have to make to your production or test code.
  • Fluent Assertions with AssertJ provides a quick introduction to AssertJ.
  • Mock? What, When, How? is a thought provoking blog post that provides three rules which help you to use mock objects in the correct way. By the way, I don't agree with all rules provided by the author, but I think that this post is still a good read.
  • Testing auto-configurations with Spring Boot 2.0 is an advanced and very interesting blog post that explains how you can write automated tests for your auto-configuration classes.
  • Writing Assertions With JUnit 5 Assertion API is the latest part of my JUnit 5 tutorial, and it describes how you can write assertions by using the "standard" assertion API of JUnit 5.

The Test With Spring course helps you to write automated tests for Spring and Spring Boot web applications.


The Really Valuable Stuff

  • Explaining Software Testing is a great blog post which describes why testers cannot guarantee that the tested software works on production.
