Summary
JUnit is the gold standard for unit testing Java applications. Filled with powerful new features designed to automate software testing, JUnit 5 boosts your productivity and helps avoid debugging nightmares. Whether you're just starting with JUnit or you want to ramp up on the new features, JUnit in Action, Third Edition has you covered. Extensively revised with new code and new chapters, JUnit in Action, Third Edition is an up-to-date guide to smooth software testing. Dozens of hands-on examples illustrate JUnit 5's innovations for dependency injection, nested testing, parameterized tests, and more. Throughout, you’ll learn how to use JUnit 5 to automate your testing, for a process that consumes less resources, and gives you more time for developing.
