Java Testing Weekly 24 / 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

  • How to Create Selenium Reports with EventListeners is an interesting blog post that explains how you can create test reports or logs without writing any duplicate code.
  • JUnit5 Programmatic Extension Registration with @RegisterExtension describes how you can register custom JUnit 5 extensions by using the @RegisterExtension annotation. Also, the author explains the difference between adding this annotation to a static field and adding this annotation to an instance field.
  • Mockito ArgumentMatchers is a pragmatic blog post that describes how you can use Mockito's argument matchers. This post also explains the difference between an argument matcher and an argument captor, and helps you to use the right tool for the job.
  • Spring REST Docs - Test driven documentation of your REST API is a very comprehensive blog post that helps you to get started with Spring REST Docs. It describes how you can get the required dependencies with Maven, explains how you can configure Spring REST Docs, and helps you to document your REST API with Spring MVC Test framework and Asciidoctor.

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


The Really Valuable Stuff

  • Lost In Automation Translation is a thought-provoking post that identifies the difficulties you will face if you try transform your existing test cases into automated tests and gives you some tips that help you to solve these problems.
  • Pros and Cons of Quarantined Tests is a good blog post that describes what a quarantined test is and provides four tips that help you to transform quarantined tests into valuable tests.
