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.
- Hamcrest Custom Matchers is a hands-on post which explains how you can write custom Hamcrest matchers.
- Mocking JDBC Using a Set of SQL String / Result Pairs is an interesting post which describes how you can replace the real JDBC implementation with a fake which reads the content of the database from a text file.
- thewaiter: opening a page and waiting for it to load with Selenium provides a quick introduction to a library called thewaither. This library helps you to more robust Selenium tests because it provides methods which allow you to wait for a wide range of page events.
The Really Valuable Stuff
- Agile Testing: Don’t Forget the Negative Test Scenarios is an excellent post which reminds you that you should ALWAYS remember to test the negative scenarios.
- Suck less: A quick introduction to accessibility is an excellent post that is written by my colleague who happens to be blind. Even though this post blog describes how you can get started with accessibility, I think that it also helps you to understand what kind of things you have to take into account when you are doing accessibility testing.
