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.
- Gatling Introduction – High Level Overview of the Stress Test Tool is a comprehensive post that identifies the key features of Gatling, provides a quick introduction to the Gatling GUI recorder, describes the structure of a Gatling scenario / script, and provides an overview to the test reports which are generated by Gatling.
- Integration testing on existing routes with Apache Camel (and Spring and DBUnit) describes how you can write integration tests for Apache Camel routes by using Spring Test framework and Spring Test DBUnit.
- Writing Assertions With Spock Framework is a free sample lesson of my Test With Spring course, and it describes how you can add conditions (assertions) to your Spock feature methods.
The Really Valuable Stuff
- Automation will kill coding before it kills testing is a thought-provoking post which argues that automation won't eliminate the need for testing. However, it might eliminate the need for programmers because the tested code is written by computers.
- The Challenge of Coverage explains that even if you might be able to reach 100% line coverage, it's probably not worth it.
