Program Description

Master software testing in Java through this highly practical and inspiring program designed to help you become a better developer.

Software testing gets a bad rap for being difficult, time-consuming, redundant, and above all - boring. But in fact, it is a proven way to ensure that your software will work flawlessly and meet release schedules.

In this two-course series, we will teach you automated software testing in an inspiring way. We will show you that testing is not as daunting a task as you might think, and how automated testing will make you a better developer who programs excellent software.

This program will cover software testing as it is practiced in the industry. The first course will cover various techniques using JUnit, including unit testing, test adequacy, and code coverage, mock objects, test-driven development, design for testability and test code quality. The second course will cover state-based and web testing, combinatorial testing, mutation testing, static analysis tools, and property-based testing.

This is a highly practical program and it suits software developers, QA engineers and software testers in a Java development environment.
