Course Description

This course introduces experienced Java developers to the fundamentals and best practices in unit testing. It uses the JUnit 5 and Mockito libraries, both of which are ubiquitous in the Java community. It is intended for both developers who are new to testing, as well as those who are already familiar with it, but want more experience with testing using JUnit 5.
Note that JUnit 5 is substantively different than JUnit 4. Although the core testing principles are the same, there are substantial implementation differences, important new features, and a brand new extension model. Developers with JUnit 3 and 4 experience will be well-served by the course.
Testing with mocks is covered in detail, using Mockito. Mocking is a standard technique, and we’ll go beyond the basics to introduce more flexible options, as well as Mockito’s dependency injection facilities. We use the new MockitoExtension to integrate Mockito into JUnit tests.
We explore testing enterprise components in the persistence, service, and web layers, outlining the issues involved in each. In the persistence layer, we show how to set up and use an embedded database, and contrast this to using mocks or fakes as a standalone alternative. We examine the unique issues in database testing with regard to test repeatability and independence, using various techniques for auto-rollback of transactions.
In-container testing is introduced as a more meaningful approach to testing enterprise components, vs. standalone testing with mocks, and we examine this at each of the main layers in an enterprise application.
Best practices are emphasized and demonstrated throughout, and our goal is to make you “test infected,” so that your development effort is as much about good testing and writing testable code as it is about writing the business code itself.
Course Length: 2 Days
