Practical Unit Testing with TestNG and Mockito by Tomek Kaczanowski

*** Quote of the Month ***

Different models are good for different things. A model that helps you predict response time will probably not help you find security holes. So it is best to follow this simple rule: question first and model second. That is, know what questions you want the model to answer before you build it. That way you will have an easier time choosing its abstraction level and what details it includes.
