I have got a doubt about null pointing object / instance test.

In general practice, how do a good programmer test for null values?

is it like :

OR is there any other method to test for null in java? like JUnit or "Sahi" kind of testing tool?

Please help me

It's very close from what you have written.

"a" and "null" can be on either side of the operator.
