The trick is to fix the problem you have, rather than the problem you want. Of course, if you have the dedicated software development team that can overcome these difficulties, you have better chances. Another solution is writing a really good unit test. In this article, we are going to reveal some secrets for you and present 3 parts of the perfect unit test.
Let’s start with the assumption that bad tests are worse than no tests. There are some set of traits that can make a test bad, so be aware of them:
- A test that has a poorly written description.
- A test is not useful.
And here are some parts of the good test. Here you need all your attention, it’s really important to remember them:
- The test has a clear and descriptive name. You need to understand it’s purpose just looking on its name.
- It has a clear setup phase where we construct test data.
- The invoking step is limited to simply calling the function with the test data.
- The assertion phase is clear and demonstrates the behavior of clear testing.
Remember the three steps:
assert and your test will be perfect. If you have these rules in mind whilst writing unit tests your work will be much easier with and your development workflow much useful. Take some time to practice them, as practice makes everything better.
