Java Testing Weekly 16 / 2017

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

The Really Valuable Stuff

  • Don’t Eat Stale Automation is an excellent blog post that explains why some tests have a shelf life and describes why these tests should be deleted after they are no longer useful. It also provides an interesting real-life example that (sadly) "proves" that almost no one deletes these rotten tests.
  • TDD "Isn't About Testing" Revisited is an interesting response to a blog post: TDD Is About Design, Not Testing. I recommend that you do yourself a favor and read both blog posts.
  • Test Automation Tools: Build or Buy? identifies four reasons why you should build your own test automation toolbox instead of buying one.
  • Unit Test! is a nice post that shares the author's positive experiences from unit testing and describes why the author thinks that unit testing is a useful and powerful tool.
