Hi,
Since Junit and xunit have been around for a while now, I am wondering if some best practices and unit testing related patterns are being captured and documented somewhere (maybe in you book).
Thanks.

"hassane E.",
I'd like to ask you to change your display name a bit as it currently does not comply with our naming policy (which disallows initials for last name).
Thanks.

I am not familiar with xunit, what is it? Could you point me to information about it?
Thanks,
Steve

Steve,
xUnit is a language independent way of refering to a framework based on JUnit in different languages. For example, C++ has CppUnit.

The book is full of testing best practices. Actually every chapter has several of them. They are sprinkled all over the chapters when a point is made.

"Test Driven Development by Example" by Kent Beck also has some nice chapters on unit testing patterns.
