There was a lot of talking in this book - I just wanted to get up to speed with JUnit. Maybe it would be more valuable for someone that was already comfortable with JUnit and wanted to explore the theory a little more. I felt the theory severely outweighed the practical in this book.

When I first saw this book I was like WTF 500 pages just about JUnit? Actually, no. The whole concept of basic JUnit testing is covered in about 150 pages - and it's enough. If you're completely new to unit testing or JUnit library, this is good place to start.

But the book has much more to offer. Even for more experienced programmers, it introduces best practices of testing web applications, database layers, front-end, server-side stuff, ajax and it even talks about integrating unit tests to build process.

Format: Paperback
This book could have easily been entitled "Java Tests in Action". While JUnit is the featured library, coverage was less complete than I would have liked. I was hoping for more complex and less obvious examples that just about any other testing-focused book contains. If you have already read a general book on testing then you likely won't gain many new insights here. However, if this would be your first book on unit testing, then you could do much worse.
