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.

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.

Its not easy to rate this book. It is not a JUnit book per se. JUnit in Action covers a lot of other unit testing tools, but surprisingly covers very little about the core JUnit features itself. If you are looking for an introductory book on unit testing based on Java/JEE technologies, then you will love this book. It covers the following useful topics about testing the typical 3-tier MVC architecture of a web application.

1)HTMLUnit and Selenium for testing front-end
2)Cactus for testing the server-side business logic implemented with servlets/ejb
3)DBUnit for testing data layer

Besides a good introduction to various related xUnit tools for testing your applications, there are also various sections on how to design good unit tests, concepts about stubs and mocks, and how to incorporate continuous integration(Hudson, cruisecontrol) into your development cycle. I found the AJAX testing chapter most interesting as the author carefully explains the different components of an AJAX application and how to use JSUnit, RhinoUnit to testing the client-side JavaScripting and using HTMLUnit and Selenium API to make async call which is no trivial task. Since this book does cover a good bit of the Java Enterprise landscape, there are also various sections on testing JDO, Hibernate and even OSGI applications. Overall, I really enjoy reading this book but didn't get much insights to using JUnit as I like to. As long as you buy this book with the right expectations, you won't be disappointed.
