Want to know what the hype surrounding JUnit 5 is all about? Then join this talk by JUnit 5 core committer Sam Brannen to find out!
Since JUnit 4.0 was first released, a lot has happened in the world of Java. Unfortunately, JUnit 4 hasn't kept up with the times. JUnit 5 therefore aims to help shape the future of testing on the JVM, with a focus on Java 8, modularity, extensibility, and a modern programming API for authoring tests in Java.
This presentation will start off by providing attendees an overview of the inspiration for and architecture of JUnit 5, from launchers to test engines. Sam will then take the audience on an example-driven tour of the new programming model, highlighting support for dependency injection via flexible method signatures, conditional test execution, using lambda expressions and method references in assertions and assumptions, and implementing test/before/after methods via interface default methods.
To round off the discussion, Sam will present an overview of the new extension model in JUnit 5, discussing how to author and register extensions for conditional tests, method parameter resolution, lifecycle callbacks, and more.
