Java Testing Weekly 34 / 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

  • Integration Testing in Spring describes how you can write integration tests for Spring web applications by using the Spring MVC Test framework.
  • Starting with Cucumber for end-to-end testing describes how you can write end-to-end tests with Selenium, TestNG, and Cucumber. This post also has an interesting comment thread where the author explains why he thinks that writing end-to-end tests that depend from other end-to-ends is not an anti-pattern.

The Really Valuable Stuff

  • 100% Code Coverage is a rather small and excellent blog post that demonstrates why high code coverage doesn't mean that we have a good test suite.
  • Continuous Delivery and user interface-driven test automation: does that compute? is an interesting blog post that helps you to select the end-to-end tests that should be added to your Continuous Delivery pipeline.
  • Good testing – luck or judgement? is an interesting blog post that helps you to understand how you can be a better tester.
  • Give Your Automated Checks Voice gives you four tips that helps you to write better automated tests. The most interesting thing is that some of these tips have got nothing to do with writing code, and yet, they can have a big positive impact to the usefulness of your test suite.

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.
