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


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.
