Learn to write automated tests for Spring and Spring Boot Web Apps: Test With Spring course

Java Testing Weekly 38 / 2017

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

  • Given-When-Then in JUnit Tests describes how you can make your tests easier to read by using the given-when-then format.
  • JUnit 5 – The Ultimate Resource provides links to the best JUnit 5 tutorials and extensions. At the moment this resource page has 18 links, and I plan to update it on regular basis. That’s why it’s a good idea to bookmark it.

The Test With Spring course helps you to write automated tests for Spring and Spring Boot web applications.


The Really Valuable Stuff

  • How to Start a Test Coach Role is an excellent blog post that provides four tips which help you to be a better test coach (or become one in the first place).
  • How Would You Test a Text Field? is a thought-provoking blog post that has two parts. The first part divides testers into four groups based on their experience and explains how the members of each group would test a text field. The second part identifies three exercises that were used in a real workshop and describes what the author learned from each exercise.
  • On Preventing Decision Fatigue provides three tips that help you write simpler tests by reducing the number of decisions that you have to make.
  • Three Ways to get Started with (Exploratory) Testing as a non-Tester is a good blog post that identifies clear steps which help you to get started with exploratory testing.
