From the Back Cover

Test first, then code, for more robust large-scale JavaScript applications

Experienced developers still struggle with the failure of large-scale JavaScript applications that collapse under their own weight. Reliable JavaScript provides the solution in the form of a test-driven workflow that produces robust applications that stand the test of time. This book uses unit tests to explain, demonstrate, and employ a wide variety of JavaScript patterns and architectures. As you follow along, you will become an expert in the test-driven development of JavaScript that is suitable for commercial software. If you are ready to bring a high level of software engineering to your JavaScript development, this book is for you.

Reliable JavaScript:

  • Shows you how to write code that's verified correct the first time, and has the test coverage to remain correct throughout subsequent maintenance
  • Surveys the current landscape of JavaScript frameworks for testing, dependency injection, and aspect-oriented programming
  • Explains testability characteristics and how to construct objects to be testable
  • Demonstrates the implementation and use of common design patterns and advanced JavaScript features and architectures
  • Covers DOM access testing, including excessive updates, excessive access in loops, and XHR/JSONP requests
  • Provides all of the book's code both in the text and on the companion website
