Java Testing Weekly 31 / 2016

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

  • A Guide to REST-assured is a quite long post that helps you to get started with REST Assured. REST Assured is a framework that helps to write automated tests for REST APIs. It has a solid support for HTTP and it provides a DSL that is both powerful and easy to read.
  • Introduction To XMLUnit 2.x provides a very comprehensive introduction to XMLUnit 2.X library that helps you to write assertions for XML documents.

The Really Valuable Stuff

  • Common Mistakes in Managing Testing introduces six mistakes that you can make when you are managing testing. This is a quite interesting post, and I think that you will recognize at least one mistake that your manager has made during your career.
  • Ever noticed what do you do between finding and reporting a bug? is an excellent blog post that explains why you shouldn’t submit a bug report right after you find a bug.
  • Microservices testing introduces four test categories and explains how you can leverage these categories when you are writing automated tests for an application that uses the microservices architecture.
  • Taking care of your test automation health is an interesting post that explains why you should take good care of your test suite and describes what happens if you abandon your test cases after you have written them.

It’s Time for Feedback

Because I want to make this newsletter worth your time, I am asking you to help me make it better.

P.S. If you want to make sure that you don’t ever miss Java Testing Weekly, you should subscribe my newsletter.
