Our weekly roundup is short this week, with one great post from our author, Carlos Schults, below.
How To Use Assert In JUnit With Examples
Assertions are at the heart of unit testing. They’re crucial in giving unit tests their “self-validating” characteristic, without which they’d be practically useless. In this post from Carlos Schults on CoderPad’s blog, you’ll learn more about the
Assert JUnit class and how you can use it to write your assertions when unit testing your Java code.
This will be a practical post, but we’ll start with a brief theoretical digression to explain what “assert” means in JUnit. Then, it’s time to roll up your sleeves. You’ll learn the following:
- The process for installing JUnit 5
- How to create a sample project for testing
- What the main assertion methods are and how they work
Let’s get started.
