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.
- Custom Assertions With AssertJ describes how you can write custom assertions with AssertJ and generate custom assertion classes by using the AssertJ Assertions Generator Maven plugin.
- On handling processing time in your integration tests with Awaitility describes how you can add wait logic to your end-to-end tests by using a DSL called Awaitility. Note that I used the term end-to-end test here because I think that the examples provided by this blog post look like end-to-end tests to me.
The Really Valuable Stuff
- Hindsight lessons about automation: Why automation? is a solid post that explains why you should write automated tests. That being said, I really love the fact that this blog post also reveals six weaknesses of automated tests.
- The Siren Call of Test Metrics is an excellent post which explains why testing metrics are harmful.
