The Well Grounded Java Developer:Testing, build & CI

Hi
I have had a great day and I hope you guys did too-trying to catch up on threads in Java 7 alongside writing code. I got some questions:
1. Could you throw some light on what Java 7 has to offer when it comes to testing? Would it drastically reduce development cycle time and help
with agile programming practice? Is it any different from unit testing?

2. What's build and CI?

3. I wish to acquire the Java 7 certification but i have access to KB6 [Sun days], so i'm just thinking I should write OCP for Java 6 SE and follow up with an upgrade exam.
However, i am not sure if the contents/curriculum for the exam under Oracle has changed. What should I do?

Thanks as always for the answers.

1) Dependency injection helps with testing. It is a technique that helps with unit testing.

2) A Build is a way to create your software package using a tool like Ant of Maven. CI is continuous integration. Your build gets run on each commit in a tool like Hudson or Jenkins.

3) This is a FAQ addressed in the top of the OCPJP forum.
