    Default JUnit Testing

    Hello everyone,

    I just started a new job and in order to help me familiarize myself with the currently existing project, they are getting me to do some JUnit Testing. I'm brand new to JUnit Testing and they have supplied me with lots of information about it, but just reading the information by itself is never as useful as actually doing it. So I wanted to know if anyone had any tips or suggestions for someone who is new to JUnit Testing to help me get started.

    Any advice is helpful.


    When asking for help, please follow these guidelines to receive better and more prompt help:
    1. Put your code in Java Tags. To do this, put [highlight=java] before your code and [/highlight] after your code.
    2. Give full details of errors and provide us with as much information about the situation as possible.
    3. Give us an example of what the output should look like when done correctly.

    Default Re: JUnit Testing

    JUnit testing is fairly easy once you understand the in's and out's. In my view it is a more flexible way of using assertions, so if you have never used assertions perhaps familiarize yourself with these.

    Next, get familiar with the API. Depending upon which version you are using, knowing a bit about injections might help

    There are tons of tutorials out there, and Eclipse has a built in JUnit framework that makes creating and running test cases much easier
