Welcome,
As a long time software engineer who has fully embraced unit testing, and mocking frameworks like Mockito, I am anxious to pick you brain on how TestNG can improve our testing over Junit. I will post my questions under the existing Junit topic that is created, as it seems to be the appropriate place to put them.

Thank you and welcome!

Hi All,

I'm excited to have my chance to answer your questions regarding testing! I hope to give you some valuable answers, but I can't promise to solve all your issues.

I am looking to some good information on how to test the code I write efficiently. The code I write often speaks to other services, so the testing involves lot of mocking. Sometimes, they tend to go a little programmer biased. I expect good tips which would make my tests more efficient.

Congratulations on the book, Tomek! I already have my copy and completed my first reading. Your book is the most useful book on unit testing I have read. And thanks for confirming my high opinions of TestNG and Mockito!
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
