  • Deep Dive into JUnit 5 Extension Model

    JUnit 5 is a modular and extensible testing framework with support for Java 8 and higher. The Jupiter extension model can be used to add custom features. This is explained by building out a simple set of extensions that support the BDD approach to testing with full code examples.

  • Q&A on the Book Agile Methods for Safety-Critical Systems

    The book Agile Methods for Safety-Critical Systems by Nancy Van Schooenderwoert and Brian Shoemaker explains how agile principles and practices can be used to build quality in from the start to develop medical and other safety-critical systems.

  • How to Achieve Collaboration as a Key Driver for Continuous Testing

    Far too often the dream of a successful digital transformation shatters against a limited, team-centric continuous testing strategy. This article describes how testing must be applied to fit not only agile teams but also the whole enterprise, why collaboration is the key enabler and how different testing techniques work together for overall success.

  • The Cloud Native QA

    The advent and widespread adoption of the cloud ecosystem presents a new challenge to the modern-day QA. What does it mean to be QA in a Cloud Native software business?

  • Improving Testability of Java Microservices with Container Orchestration and a Service Mesh

    In enterprise test scenarios, software needs to be tested in the same way as it will run in production. This article provides a practical demonstration of testing Java microservices that are running on Kubernetes with the Istio service mesh. K8s service abstractions enable mocking, and Istio enables us to re-route traffic and inject faulty responses or delays to verify our services' resiliency.

  • How Contract Tests Improve the Quality of Your Distributed Systems

    Catching bugs at the end of a development cycle is costly, but how do you incrementally test complex distributed systems? In this article, Marcin Grzejszczak looks at an integration testing approach for communication between components. He reviews contract testing, and Spring Cloud Contract, as one solution.

  • Coaching Technical Practices

    In the past 4-5 years I have been working as a software development coach, helping organizations around London improve their technical practices. I focus on XP practices, specifically TDD, Pair Programming, Refactoring and Simple Design. In this article I share my experiences organizing coaching sessions, including subject selection and sequencing, exercises for each subject and session formats.

  • Q&A on the Book Testing in the Digital Age

    The Book Testing in the Digital Age by Tom van de Ven, Rik Marselis, and Humayun Shaukat, explains the impact that developments like robotics, artificial intelligence, internet of things, and big data are having in testing. It explores the challenges and possibilities that the digital age brings us when it comes to testing software systems.

  • Peer Reviews Either Sandbag or Propel Agile Development

    Agile teams are hungry for feedback, but are they getting it fast enough? If your peer review process isn’t structured right, it could be dragging down your development. This article explains how your team can unlock the full potential of code and document reviews by employing a structured, but flexible process that accelerates development and fosters a culture of collaboration

  • 2018 State of Testing Report

    The State of Testing 2018 report provides insights into the adoption of test techniques, practices, and test automation, and the challenges that testers are facing. It shares results from this year’s testing survey. InfoQ held an interview with the organizers of the State of Testing survey.

  • A Quick Guide to Implementing ATDD

    Collaboration is one of the core values of Agile Methodology. That being said, what happens when you notice lack of collaboration between developers, testers and business-minded individuals in agile teams? This article provides a quick guide to implementing Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD) in your projects to mitigate problems due to lack of collaboration.

  • Architecturally Aligned Testing

    Testing microservices should not be done in a separate test phase, by a dedicated test team, but instead collaboratively by cross-functional teams. There is a shift left in testing to ensure that teams stay autonomous and a shift right in testing towards exploration and experimentation. Continuous Testing and a culture of experimentation are enablers to release microservices fast and reliably.
