Hi all,

I'm looking for a good book that describe how to write good tests for different kinds of applications.

Can anyone recommend me one?

Thanks.

"JUnit in Action" and "Test Driven" are both very good books for developer testing.

For learning about the technicalities of how to write good and useful Unit Tests for various situations "Effective Unit Testing", the follow up to "Test Driven", is also excellent.

As a motivation for why you might want to write Unit Tests, and employ TDD, I would recommend "Test-Driven Development by Example" by Kent Beck.

JUnit is more common than TestNG. If someone is getting started with testing, I think it is better to start with the more common of the frameworks.
