In test driven development, you first write an executable test ofwhat your application code must do. Only then do you write thecode itself and, with the test spurring you on, you improve yourdesign. In acceptance test driven development (ATDD), you usethe same technique to implement product features, benefiting fromiterative development, rapid feedback cycles, and better-definedrequirements. TDD and its supporting tools and techniques leadto better software faster.
Test Driven brings under one cover practical TDD techniquesdistilled from several years of community experience. With examplesin Java and the Java EE environment, it explores both the techniquesand the mindset of TDD and ATDD. It uses carefully chosen examplesto illustrate TDD tools and design patterns, not in the abstractbut concretely in the context of the technologies you face at work.It is accessible to TDD beginners, and it offers effective and less wellknown techniques to older TDD hands.
