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.
- Maven: Use JUnit 5 with Spring Boot for unit and integration tests is a practical blog post that helps you run your unit and integration tests with Maven when you are using Spring Boot.
- WireMock Tutorial: Request Matching, Part Three is the latest part of my WireMock tutorial, and it helps you to specify your expectations for the JSON document received by your WireMock server.
The Really Valuable Stuff
- Classic TDD or "London School"? is a bit old but very useful blog post. It explains the differences of these two approaches and helps you to choose the right tool for the job.
- Good and Bad UI Test Automation Explained is an interesting blog post that describes how you can write good UI tests.
- “Tests are useless if they don’t fail” is a thought-provoking post which argues tests provide useful information even if they don't fail. I agree. The problem is that if you have never seen that a test fails, you cannot be sure that your test can fail.
