    Default java testing

    I have a java program written and want to write at least one test for each class. What would you recommend for using to unit test java classes?

    thanks

    It really depends on what the class does. What is your actual question?

    I write a main() method for the class that calls its methods with many test cases.

    Is there no automated test suites that can be run easily against Java classes to say for example, check output is correct with certain inputs?

    That sounds like a good student project. How would it work? Would the programmer that wrote the code to be tested have to define what the input could be and what the output should be?

    yeah like my class takes values and does some calculations on them. Ive done something similar in c# before using nunit which has built in assert methods so I could do something like... Assert.AreEqual(4,answer), so this would check if the variable answer contained the value 4 after execution. Thanks KevinWorkman, ill look into Junit now
