Test-Driven Development (TDD) with Java


Recommended Duration:
2 Days
Attendees will learn testing concepts (structural, black box, white box, critical path, etc…) and understand how Test-Driven Development (TDD) is used. Participants will learn to use various open-source tools including JUnit and JWebUnit to test Java programs and Web applications.
Java developers using Test-Driven Development (TDD) methods.

Students should have experience working with Java or have completed “Java Programming I” or equivalent.

Seven computer exercises will be conducted to emphasize major course topics. Exercises may be performed using available IDE (Eclipse, IBM RAD, Oracle JDeveloper) or command-line tools.
