"This book is something special. The chapters build on each other to a startling accumulation of depth. Get ready for a treat."
From the Foreword by Robert C. Martin, cleancoder.com
The Art of Unit Testing, Second Edition guides you step by step from writing your first simple tests to developing robust test sets that are maintainable, readable, and trustworthy. You'll master the foundational ideas and quickly move to high-value subjects like mocks, stubs, and isolation, including frameworks such as Moq, FakeItEasy and Typemock Isolator. You'll explore test patterns and organization, working with legacy code, and even "untestable" code. Along the way, you'll learn about integration testing and techniques and tools for testing databases and other technologies.
The examples in the book use C#, but will benefit anyone using a statically typed language such as Java or C++.
