This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I have been thrown rather into the deep end and asked to debug and create test cases for an application. I'm completely new to JUNIT, and I'll be honest my Java is not that great beyond the basics. I know the methods I want to test, and the results I want to prove. However, it's the coding that is the problem for me. I learn best by example rather than by explanation, and I also suspect the fact I'm partially sighted is not helping issues when it comes to spotting errors. The application itself is at Index of /trending
That folder also contains my checklist of things to test and an explanation of the classes in the application. I've looked for quite a while at JUNIT examples, and even had someone send me an application with test cases, but I was having real problems relating any of it to my application. It's not helping that to test any of the classes seems to require taking arguements and items (arrays, files, ints, etc) from other classes, and here I'm totally lost.
I'm not asking for someone to do this all for me, but I'd be really grateful if someone could possibly take a look at this and perhaps get me started on the right track with a couple of examples with my application. Thanks very much, Hussein
