Java Testing with JUnit 5


Course Number: JAV-312

Duration: 2 days (13 hours)

Format: Live, hands-on

JUnit 5 Training Overview

JUnit 5 is substantively different than JUnit 4. Although the core testing principles are the same, there are substantial implementation differences, important new features, and a brand new extension model.

Accelebrate's Java Testing with JUnit 5 teaches experienced Java developers the fundamentals of unit testing using JUnit 5 and Mockito libraries. Attendees learn how to test enterprise components in the persistence, service, and web layers. Best practices are emphasized and demonstrated throughout this course.

Location and Pricing

Accelebrate offers instructor-led enterprise training for groups of 3 or more online or at your site. Most Accelebrate classes can be flexibly scheduled for your group, including delivery in half-day segments across a week or set of weeks.

In addition, some courses are available as live, online classes for individuals. See a schedule of online courses.

Objectives

  • Understand the new JUnit 5 library structure, role of each component, and how they interact
  • Configure IDE projects to run tests natively, and via Maven Surefire
  • Write cohesive and effective tests and design classes for testability
  • Understand the full test lifecycle, and employ it to configure test fixtures
  • Run tests using all available mechanisms: IDE, Maven, JUnit Console Launcher, Launcher API
  • Use test discovery and filtering to define and run test plans, including conditional test execution
  • Employ naming conventions at every level - test name, classname, display name
  • Organize tests with assertion groups and nested tests
  • Use test interfaces to apply good OO principles to testing
  • Understand the new JUnit extension model, and how to write and use them
  • Understand JUnit 4 compatibility and migration
  • Use mock objects with Mockito to support isolated testing
  • Explore Mockito's facilities for dependency injection of mocks
  • Use argument matchers for more generalized testing with mocks
  • Implement partial mocking with spies
  • Understand the issues in testing enterprise components
  • Understand the two basic approaches: standalone testing with mocks, and in-container testing
  • Test database access components, using both fakes and an embedded database
  • Understand the additional issues involved in testing

Prerequisites

All students must have a good working knowledge of Java and OO, including the use of interfaces, abstract classes, collections, factories, and generics. Experience with Java 8 lambda expressions is helpful, but not required.
