Description

It's important to not only understand the concepts of a particular testing level but also to learn how to apply them in practice. In this course, Implementing a Test Pyramid Strategy in Java, you’ll learn how to develop Java applications that are tested at all levels. First, you'll learn about unit testing and how to work with the components in isolation. Next, you'll discover integration testing, combining the units as a group and system testing. Finally, you'll explore the acceptance testing, making the software ready for delivery to the end user. When you're finished with this course, you’ll be prepared for the real-life challenge: to know how to develop reliable applications, starting from solid building blocks, to integration, to working with external systems, and finally arriving at the target of software development - satisfying the business needs.

Course Overview
Hello everyone. My name is Catalin Tudose, and welcome to my Implementing a Test Pyramid Strategy in Java course. I am a Java and web technologies expert at Luxoft Romania, and I have more than 20 years of experience in the IT field. More than 15 of them have been dedicated to Java and the technologies around it. In this course, we are going to follow one of the most frequent situations in the development of contemporary projects. The focus will be on clearly explaining the concepts of a particular testing level and to apply them in practice. You'll be able to replace most of the previous manual testing build strong and safe applications. The main topics that we are going to approach will be introducing software testing, unit testing, our basic components work in isolation, integration testing units combined as a group, system testing, looking at the complete software, and acceptance testing the compliance with the business requirements. By the end of this course, you'll know how to develop Java applications that are tested at all levels from the units up to the acceptance testing. So making the software ready for delivery to the end user. You will be prepared for the real-life challenge to know how to develop reliable applications starting from solid building blocks, integrating them, working with external systems, and arriving at the target of software development satisfying the business needs. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with object-oriented programming concepts and with the JUnit tool, be proficient in writing Java Core code, and have some basic understanding of the Apache Maven build tool. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn implementing a test pyramid strategy in Java, at Pluralsight.
