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.
- Mockito annotations – @Mock, @Spy, @Captor, @InjectMocks is a practical blog post that describes how you can create mocks, spies, and argument captors by using annotations.
- Testing on the Toilet: Exercise Service Call Contracts in Tests is an interesting blog post that demonstrates why mocking a service call isn't always the right choice.
The Really Valuable Stuff
- Don’t Define Testing Around Bug Finding is an excellent blog post that explains why it's not a good idea to measure the number of bugs found during testing and use this number as a metric that helps you to see if testing is effective or not.
- What to Test When There's Not Enough Time to Test is a helpful blog post that identifies four things that you should test when you are testing a feature that will be released tomorrow.
