    This is a great introductory text for Programmers new to or uncertain about Unit testing.

    Unit testing is `by the developer for the developer¿, it¿s a tool used to ensure code written withstand the tests of time through changes in requirements, bug fixes, and added functionality. Unit (leveraging JUnit) tests are written in Java (there is also a C# version of this text) that live within a testing framework called JUnit and are executed against our application code on a periodic basis (whether that be hourly, daily or at deployment, its up to you) to validate that the code under test continues to perform as per its requirements throughout the project lifecycle. This way we write code that conforms to the `ilities¿, reliability, repeatability, maintainability, and scalability. The book takes you through a nicely sculpted path of learning from the initial `baby-steps¿ Unit testing examples to the more complex day to day challenges of writing loosely coupled Unit tests (using MockObjects) in surrounding environments that include things such as the network, database, or even a Servlet Container. And while winding its way down this path we are also introduced to pearls of wisdom in Chapters titled, `What to Test¿, `Using MockObjects¿, `Properties of Good Tests¿, `Testing on a Project¿, `Design Issues¿, and `Gotchas¿. And finally at the end of the path or text we find a list of very useful testing resources, the text summary, and answers to all exercise questions in the book. This is a definite must have for the programmers tool-kit.
