Java Testing Weekly 50 / 2016

An astronaut meets a ufo

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

I just finished the "Writing Integration Tests for Spring Web Applications" topic of my "Test With Spring" course:


The Really Valuable Stuff

  • Brainstorming Test Ideas With Developers explains how testers can help developers to brainstorm test ideas. This is a really fascinating subject and it would be interesting to participate in similar brainstorming sessions because they seem to be really useful.
  • Is BDD Testing? Collaboration and testers is the second part of the author’s “Is BDD Testing” series. This blog post concentrates on collaboration that is often ignored because people are obsessed with testing tools. In any case, if you want to know collaboration matters, you should take a look at this blog post.
  • On asking ‘why?’ in test automation is a really interesting post that urges you to think before you act. To be more specific, the author claims that you should know why you want to do something before you actually do it.
