Gopi,
In general, assume it will take up to 24 hours before most people have seen your post. Also note that yesterday and today were a holiday in the United States so many people have been offline.

On to your question, I recommend "Test Driven" (written by one of the moderators here) or "JUnit in Action" (second edition if you want to buy the electronic version - the print version is a few months out.) I've read both - well the first edition of the later - and they are both excellent when it comes to techniques and patterns.

I was readding "TDD by Kent Beck" and he says that is not a good idea to test framework that you are using ( I mean those that are not made by you or your company).

He says that there is no reason to test like "Integer.toString()". It would be a waste of time. You have to worry about your software. If you have a webservice, make tests that will work with that parameter. Not the test with "request.getParameter()".

Read this book, is very good.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
