Sample text

Language-Specific xUnit Terminology Although this book includes examples in a variety of languages and xUnit family members, JUnit figures prominently in this coverage. JUnit is the language and xUnit framework that most people are at least somewhat familiar with. Many of the translations of JUnit to other languages are relatively faithful ports, with only minor changes in class and method names needed to accommodate the differences in the underlying language. Where this isn’t the case, Appendix B, xUnit Terminology Cross-Reference, often includes the appropriate mapping.

In the online version of this book, hyperlinks were used for this purpose. For the printed version, however, I needed a way to represent this linkage as a page number annotation of the reference without cluttering up the entire text with references. The solution I landed on after several tries includes the page number where the pattern or smell can be found the first time it is referenced in a chapter, pattern, or smell. If the reference is to a pattern variation or the cause of a smell, I include the aggregate pattern or smell name the first time.

Pattern Form This book includes my descriptions of patterns. The patterns themselves existed before I started cataloging them, by virtue of having been invented independently by at least three different test automaters. I took it upon myself to write them down as a way of making the knowledge more easily distributable. But to do so, I had to choose a pattern description form. Pattern descriptions come in many shapes and sizes. Some have a very rigid structure defined by many headings that help the reader find the various sections.
