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.

- Using PowerMock to Mock Static Methods is a good blog post that describes how you can mock static methods with PowerMock when you are using JUnit 4. Also, even though some people think that mocking static methods is a bad practice, this technique can be really useful when you are writing tests for legacy code.
