Automated testing is a cornerstone of agile development. An effective testing strategy will deliver new functionality more aggressively, accelerate user feedback, and improve quality. However, for many developers, creating effective automated tests is a unique and unfamiliar challenge. xUnit Test Patterns is the definitive guide to writing automated tests using xUnit, the most popular unit testing framework in use today. Agile coach and test automation expert Gerard Meszaros describes 68 proven patterns for making tests easier to write, understand, and maintain. He then shows you how to make them more robust and repeatable--and far more cost-effective. Loaded with information, this book feels like three books in one. The first part is a detailed tutorial on test automation that covers everything from test strategy to in-depth test coding. The second part, a catalog of 18 frequently encountered "test smells," provides trouble-shooting guidelines to help you determine the root cause of problems and the most applicable patterns.
The third part contains detailed descriptions of each pattern, including refactoring instructions illustrated by extensive code samples in multiple programming languages. Topics covered include * Writing better tests--and writing them faster * The four phases of automated tests: fixture setup, exercising the system under test, result verification, and fixture teardown * Improving test coverage by isolating software from its environment using Test Stubs and Mock Objects * Designing software for greater testability * Using test "smells" (including code smells, behavior smells, and project smells) to spot problems and know when and how to eliminate them * Refactoring tests for greater simplicity, robustness, and execution speed This book will benefit developers, managers, and testers working with any agile or conventional development process, whether doing test-driven development or writing the tests last.
While the patterns and smells are especially applicable to all members of the xUnit family, they also apply to next-generation behavior-driven development frameworks such as RSpec and JBehave and to other kinds of test automation tools, including recorded test tools and data-driven test tools such as Fit and FitNesse.

xUnit Test Patterns: Refactoring Test Code (Addison-Wesley Signature Series (Fowler))の感想・レビュー・書評




  • 5ヶ月かけてようやく読了。900ページもある本だけれども、無駄なことは1つも書いてありませんでした。


  • ソフトウェアテスティングの分野ではあらゆるところでレファレンスされる一冊。読み始めた当初は、テストをパターン化して整理しているだけあって抽象的な用語も多く、それらが持つ意味がなかなか把握できなくて苦労したことも多かったが、調べながら一通り読通してある程度この書籍から得た知識が身になり、この分野について本質的な理解が深まった実感がある。今後も手元に置き必要に応じて参照していきたい。

  • UnitTestのフレームワークファミリー(xUnit)を使った、UnitTestコードのパターンを説明しています。また、xUnitの原理から、UnitTestの目的、種類・分類など、UnitTestを体系的にまとめています。
