======================= MANNING PRESS RELEASE ======================= Manning Publications announces the November release of: JUnit in Action Greenwich, CT -- Developers in the know are switching to a new testing strategy--unit testing--in which coding is interleaved with testing. This powerful approach results in better-designed software with fewer defects and faster delivery cycles. With unit testing, whenever a new programming step is taken, every previous step has been confirmed to be correct. Written by a recognized expert, this book discusses practical testing techniques through rich real-life examples. It shows how to write automated tests, highlights the advantages of testing a code segment in isolation from the rest of the code, and shows how to decide when an integration test is needed. It provides a valuable--and unique--discussion of how to test complete J2EE applications. Read sample chapters and other content from the book at www.manning.com/massol. About the Author -- Vincent Massol is the creator of the Jakarta Cactus testing framework and an active member of the Maven and MockObjects development teams.
