Testing Basics: Results of Tests

Tests executed by hand can end up with plethora of results ranging from "*#$& exception!!" to "it works... and this exception has always been there". In case of automated tests things look different. There are only few possible outcomes. Let us take a closer look at them.


TimeOut for Configuration Annotations of TestNG

  4. require too many clicks to find out what has gone wrong,
  5. not very pretty,

Because of this, you finally decide to create your own reports. Good, then read this post, and you will learn about one possible way of achieving this.


Is test-first any better than test-last? oh, yes it is!

Is test-first better than test-last ? Is there a significant difference in the quality of code developed using these approaches ? It's hard to say for sure. My gut feeling (and experience) tells me that test-first is superior. Sometimes I find evidences for this claim. Like the one I present in this blog post.
