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.
- Getting Started With Mockito (1) helps you get the required dependencies with Maven, describes how you can use Mockito with JUnit and TestNG, and identifies four best practices that help you to write better unit tests.

- Introduction to Continuous Integration with JHipster identifies the benefits of continuous integration and describes how you can get start doing continuous integration when you are using JHipster, SonarCube, and Jenkins.
- Serenity BDD with Spring and JBehave helps you to integrate Serenity BDD with Spring Framework and describes how you can write automated tests for your Spring applications by using Serenity BDD and JBehave.
