Reading Time: 3 minutes Mockito is a fun way to perform unit tests, but it’s true potential can only be realised if the underlying layers are designed in such a way that there is no interaction with the internal logic of other components of the application.
Reading Time: 2 minutes What does it mean for a test to be independent? It means that a test should not depend upon the presence or absence of other tests, the order of the tests, or whether or not previous tests failed or not. It also means that the tests should not be dependent upon external things such environment variables, an internet connection, or the local time. Why is Continue Reading
Reading Time: 2 minutes As a developer, we know that how important is to write unit test-cases in programming life. Unit Tests allows you to make big changes to code quickly. The main goal of unit testing is to segregate each part of the program and test that the individual parts are working correctly. Failure in a unit test shows without a doubt which part of the code doesn’t Continue Reading
Reading Time: 2 minutes A good developer always writes a unit test case for his/her code. While writing test cases, we came across various types of scenarios, including the one where we need to mock static methods. One of the common examples of such scenario is where our service is using some static methods from a third party library. Here, one way to deal is to have an adapter Continue Reading
Reading Time: 8 minutes “Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand.” – Martin Fowler “I can code.” I always say to myself. But do others think the same? Is my code good enough for people to understand? Do other people think “Damn I wish I could write such code.?” – that’s the main question I always had in Continue Reading
Reading Time: < 1 minute Hello everyone, Knoldus organized a session on 22nd December 2017. The topic was “JMockit”. Many people attended and enjoyed the session. In this blog post, I am going to share the slides & video of the session. Slides: JMockit from Knoldus Inc. Video: If you have any query, then please feel free to comment below.
Reading Time: 2 minutes A Brief analysis on Mockito And Jmockit Mockito JMockit 1. We can achieve Static method/constructor mocking by the combination of Mockito with Powermock. 1. Static method/constructor can be mocked directly in JMockit. 2. The Mockito API contains several inconsistencies in the syntax used for invocations to mocked methods. In the record phase, we have calls like when(mock.mockedMethod(args))… while in the verify phase this same call Continue Reading
Reading Time: 5 minutes So we are following TDD, And we are working on unit test cases, And then we are stuck with mocking. Well this was the situation we faced. And while going through various API tools for mocking, we came through this amazing toolkit: JMockit. What is JMockit? JMockit is open source software licensed under the MIT License. It includes APIs for mocking, faking, and integration testing, Continue Reading
Reading Time: 3 minutes Frankly, I don’t think there’s any need of telling us, “The Developers”, the need for proper testing or Unit testing to be correct(QAs, Don’t be flattered :P). The unit test cases are the quickest way to know there’s something wrong with our code. “Unit testing is important because it is one of the earliest testing efforts performed on the code and the earlier defects are detected, the easier Continue Reading
Reading Time: 4 minutes Let’s first understand the basic difference between unit testing and component testing and then we will have a look at a practical application of unmanaged service in lagom with its test cases. Difference between Unit Testing and Component Testing Unit Testing involves testing of individual units(classes) to demonstrate that the program executes as per the specification and it validates the design and technical quality of Continue Reading
Reading Time: 6 minutes “Quality is free, but only to those who are willing to pay heavily for it” – T. DeMarco Now unit testing is not that heavy to pay off so lets start the blog. In this blog we will be continuing the voyage to the kingdom of ANTLR4 RECAP In previous blog we discussed how to test whether a string is grammatically correct or not using Continue Reading
Reading Time: < 1 minute Knoldus organized a KnolX session on Wednesday, 13 April 2016. In this KnolX session, we explored the different methods of writing unit tests for Spark applications. This session also talks about how unit testing of Spark applications is done, as well as tells about the best way to do it. This includes writing unit tests with and without Spark Testing Base package, which is a spark Continue Reading
