Just had a quick squizz at the code. It’s using JUnit 3. Is there any plan to revise the book for JUnit 4 ?

cheers Michael

It definitely would be nice to see this book updated. There’s a lot of new stuff in JUnit, and related subjects like mock object tools tdd/bdd etc

Another vote here for updating this book. I need to work on my unit-test fu and the Pragmatic Bookshelf has let me down for the first time!

I agree. I see no reason to buy a book, that covers Unit 3. It needs a unit 4 (or Test NG) update.

I agree that this book would need a refresh concerning JUnit 3.

BUT at the same time, I have a friend who let me have this book for some weeks (maybe more if he forget that I have it :-D), and I’ve read it from cover to cover… and that’s the most interesting and pragmatic book on the subject of Unit Testing that I’ve read.

And to be honnest, using JUnit 3 or 4, is not that important. The goal of this book is to explain Unit Testing, how to use it, what are the things to be careful, etc… etc… JUnit is just a tool that is used to simplify the unit testing.

I’m more unhappy, because I would like to buy this book (well e-book in my case), and I cannot do it here… can somebody from “The Pragmatic Programmers” do something? That’s frustrating!
