I heard about Test Driven Development where we write out testcase first and then code .I don't know how we can write testcase to test a method if we yet don't implemented the class.I am using Junit for unit test case.Can anyone please tell me with example.

You write the test as if there already was a class with exactly the API you need to write the tests sensibly. That test, of course, won't compile to begin with, so the first step in making it run is writing just enough of the production code to make the test compile.

Does that help?
