Up and running in automated testing - pointers pls

I've been working in Java for just a few weeks and have resolved my testing so far by means of visually checking System.out.println output.
This is tiresome, and while I recognize the need for a more elegant approach, I wonder what learning route I should take from here. Is this book appropriate for my expertise level? If not, I'd be grateful if you could suggest where I could go (links, resources) from here.
thanks in advance,

for designing recursive unit test with at the end of project ... the possibility of making non-regression tests.

Hi Alan,
I'd like to recommend this cool introductory article about Ant and JUnit addressing your bother.

There is a good german book about unit testing in java, which they are currently translating to english:
Also, Kent Beck is discussing his draft of his newest book about test driven development here:
