Unit Test Frameworks: Tools for High-Quality Software Development

By Paul Hamill

Unit try frameworks are a key section of well known improvement methodologies akin to severe Programming (XP) and Agile improvement. yet unit checking out has moved a long way past severe Programming; it truly is now universal in lots of sorts of software improvement. Unit assessments aid determine low-level code correctness, decrease software program improvement cycle time, increase developer productiveness, and bring extra powerful software.Until now, there has been little documentation on hand on unit trying out, and so much resources addressed particular frameworks and particular languages, instead of explaining using unit checking out as a language-independent, standalone improvement method. This valuable new publication covers the idea and heritage of unit try out frameworks, deals step by step guideline in easy unit try improvement, offers worthy code examples in either Java and C++, and comprises info on essentially the most popular frameworks this present day from the XUnit family members, together with JUnit for Java, CppUnit for C++, and NUnit for .NET.Unit try Frameworks comprises transparent, concise, and distinctive descriptions of:

  • The idea and layout of unit attempt frameworks
  • Examples of unit checks and frameworks
  • Different sorts of unit tests
  • Popular unit try frameworks
  • And more

It additionally comprises the total resource code for CppUnit for C++, and NUnit for .NET.

Design Patterns in Ruby

By Russ Olsen

Praise for Design styles in Ruby

" Design styles in Ruby files shrewdpermanent how you can unravel many difficulties that Ruby builders usually come upon. Russ Olsen has performed an excellent task of choosing vintage styles and augmenting those with more recent styles that experience detailed relevance for Ruby. He in actual fact explains every one thought, creating a wealth of expertise on hand to Ruby builders for his or her personal day-by-day work."

—Steve Metsker, dealing with advisor with Dominion electronic, Inc.

"This publication offers an excellent demonstration of the major 'Gang of 4' layout styles with no resorting to overly technical reasons. Written in an actual, but virtually casual kind, this publication covers adequate flooring that even these with out past publicity to layout styles will quickly believe convinced using them utilizing Ruby. Olsen has performed a very good activity to make a e-book a couple of classically 'dry' topic into such an attractive or even sometimes funny read."

—Peter Cooper

"This booklet renewed my curiosity in figuring out styles after a decade of fine intentions. Russ picked the main worthwhile styles for Ruby and brought them in an easy and logical demeanour, going past the GoF's styles. This ebook has more advantageous my use of Ruby, and inspired me to blow off the airborne dirt and dust protecting the GoF book."

—Mike Stok

" Design styles in Ruby is a smart means for programmers from statically typed objectoriented languages to benefit how layout styles look in a extra dynamic, versatile language like Ruby."

—Rob Sanheim, Ruby Ninja, Relevance

Most layout trend books are in line with C++ and Java. yet Ruby is different—and the language's exact characteristics make layout styles more straightforward to enforce and use. during this ebook, Russ Olsen demonstrates tips on how to mix Ruby's energy and magnificence with styles, and write extra subtle, potent software program with a long way fewer traces of code.

After reviewing the background, options, and targets of layout styles, Olsen bargains a short journey of the Ruby language—enough to permit any skilled software program developer to instantly make the most of styles with Ruby. The booklet specifically calls awareness to Ruby beneficial properties that simplify using styles, together with dynamic typing, code closures, and "mixins" for less complicated code reuse.

Fourteen of the vintage "Gang of 4" styles are thought of from the Ruby standpoint, explaining what difficulties each one development solves, discussing even if conventional implementations make experience within the Ruby setting, and introducing Ruby-specific advancements. you will find possibilities to enforce styles in precisely one or traces of code, rather than the eternally repeated boilerplate that traditional languages frequently require.

Design styles in Ruby additionally identifies leading edge new styles that experience emerged from the Ruby group. those comprise how you can create customized items with metaprogramming, in addition to the bold Rails-based "Convention Over Configuration" trend, designed to aid combine whole purposes and frameworks.

Engaging, useful, and obtainable, Design styles in Ruby can help you construct greater software program whereas making your Ruby programming adventure extra rewarding.
