New Manning Book Release -- JUnit Recipes: Practical Methods for Programmer Testing
Greenwich, CT, August 10, 2004 � JUnit is a popular open source testing framework used by programmers to test their Java code. More and more developers are turning to JUnit to incrementally build a test suite at low cost, catch unintended side effects, and focus their development efforts.
�JUnit Recipes: Practical Methods for Programmer Testing� fills the gap in reliable JUnit documentation and serves as both a reference and a tutorial. The book contains one hundred and thirty seven step-by-step recipes for using JUnit effectively in a real, professional environment, culled from J.B. Rainsberger�s years of personal experience as a master programmer and often-sought expert in the JUnit community. This how-to reference collects common testing patterns into realistic working examples. The focus is on practical JUnit solutions to a range of problems, from the simplest applications to even the most difficult legacy components such as EJB's and JDBC code. �JUnit Recipes� is published by Manning Publications and arrives in bookstores August 2004.
In his Foreword to the book, Object Mentor�s founder, Robert C. Martin, calls �JUnit Recipes� a �remarkable compendium of recipes written for those of us who use JUnit in our daily work.� He goes on to say, �No other book manages to cram as much wisdom, knowledge and practical advice about JUnit and unit testing into a single volume.�

ABOUT THE AUTHORS J.B. Rainsberger is a Toronto-based developer and consultant. Faced with little available online documentation for JUnit, he wrote the online tutorial, �JUnit: A Starter Guide�, in 2001. It still draws thousands of readers a month and is required reading for college and university Computer Science courses around the world. This tutorial led to his writing �JUnit Recipes�. Scott Stirling is a Senior Software Engineer on the Platform and Tools team at Workscape, Inc. in Framingham, MA. He has been active in the JUnit community since 2000 and has contributed code to the Jakarta Ant task.
