Hi Everyone,
Yesterday i went in an interview and in third round of interview i was asked about the tools that you use in development . I said only thing i use in JDeveloper and then he asked about the Agile Software Development Process and testing tools. I said thati work in small organization and we don't use these methologies and we only do White Box testing. and then they ended the Interview.They said they will inform me later on(which they will never do so).

Well I work on small organization and there are only 2 persons work in J2EE projects. but we don't follow Agile Process or any other Testing tools. Is it really important as new Jobs are coming with such requirement. could any one tell how can i get trained on these Agile Process and Testing Tools. and also Very Important which tools I should Use.

I Will really appreciate if somone can guide me such things as these are very much important now days

Thanks

JUnit should be a good start. They call it Test Driven Development (TDD).
Its easy to learn and use.
Visit www.junit.org for more information.

Hi Manish !

You are totally right, you must cope with agile development process which applies everywhere now, even for single developpers. In fact "agile development" is all about XP, extreme programming, and refactoring. Use Google with keywords such as "agile development", "extreme programming", or "xp programming" to find relevant things.

Best regards.

Thanks for the reply. I understand that i searched lot on google. But what i want is case studies based on Agile Process or such project Documentation or Dummy projects on Agile Process. or if i could training somewhere in India that will be wonderful. I'll really appreciate if someone could help me in this regard.

Thanks

Well., training as such is not requierd. It's just the approach. I also work for a smallish company but we do religiously follow test-infected-programming practise. You may start by buying a copy of O'reilly's 'Java Extreme Programming Cookbook'

Just write a small code, a login servlet/action maybe....Then write 2/3 tests to test following situations and if your action can handle them gracefully.

(1) good password, authenticated
(2) bad password -- action message or error
(3) no pass or incorrct username -- action message or error.

Just participate in Testing forum to know more.

HTH,
