Unit Testing using JUnit Course Overview

This Unit Testing using JUnit course focuses on the fundamental concepts of Unit Testing as part of the Software Development Life Cycle and covers the core features of JUnit which is the most popular framework for implementing Unit Testing within Java projects. Version 4 of the JUnit Framework is used in this course.

This hands-on course shows delegates how to design and develop JUnit Test Cases for a variety of Java modules. Delegates will learn how to build related groups of Test Cases into Test Suites that can be run together to test multiple Java classes. Delegates will also learn how to integrate JUnit with build utilities such as Apache Ant and to customise test reports.

The use of Mocks and Stubs to isolate the system under test from external dependencies will also be covered and will be used to test Data Access Objects and Web Responses.

Exercises and examples are used throughout the course to give practical hands-on experience with the techniques covered.

Course Objectives

This course aims to provide the delegate with the knowledge to be able to describe the concepts of unit testing, design, write and execute test cases using JUnit, integrate JUnit with Apache Maven, stub and mock collaborators, and test DAOs and web responses.
