6 Small Unit Testing Tips

Henrik Warne

Choosing test values when writing unit tests is mostly guided by the need to cover all cases of the program logic. Here are a few tips on how to pick values that make mistakes easy to spot and the tests easy to read. Plus a bonus tip on a quick way to double check your tests. .

Testing at Every Stage of Development

Up to 80% of new products fail. The reality is harsh and the reasons why are endless. Perhaps the new product couldn’t oust a customer favorite. Maybe it looked great but was too hard to use. Or, despite being a superior product, the go-to-market strategy failed. There’s always a risk when building a new product, but you can hedge your bets by understanding exactly what your customers' expectations truly are at every step of the development process.

Best Practices for Application Performance Testing


When done properly, software application performance testing determines if a system meets certain acceptable criteria for both responsiveness and robustness. Before you jump in to testing, though, there are some best practices to remember.

Is Manual Testing Needed?

Henrik Warne

For the past few years, I have heard many people advocating using only automatic tests. For example, if all the automatic tests pass, then the code should automatically be deployed to production. I have always performed a bit of manual testing before feeling confident about my code. So for the past year I have paid extra attention to bugs I have found manually testing my own code. My conclusion: manual testing is still needed. How I Test.

Mutation testing with Pitest


Mutation testing promises to help ensure quality tests. It does this by making changes to a code base and running all tests. If all is well, some changes in code should result in failing tests. So making a bunch of changes like inverting the condition in an if-statement, should cause the tests to fail. The post Mutation testing with Pitest appeared first on Xebia Blog.

Unit Testing and Integration Testing in Practice

Dzone - DevOps

Automating software testing is a practice that allows developers to avoid repetitive manual checks to verify if an application works correctly. These tests can be automated by implementing them using programming languages, frequently the same programming language used to develop the application to test. Depending on the coverage of the tests, they can be classified as unit tests or integration tests.
