Get started with software testing in Java with our comprehensive course, designed for beginners as well as those looking to refresh their testing skills, offering a deep dive into the world of JUnit and Test-Driven Development (TDD).


  • Begin with the basics of software testing, understanding its pivotal role in the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and how it’s applied in Java.
  • Transition to the core of the course with JUnit—learn to write your first tests, utilize JUnit annotations and assertions, and adopt best practices for efficient testing.
  • Master the art of running JUnit tests using Maven commands or directly within your IDE, and delve into code coverage reports to ensure your testing is thorough.
  • Discover the pragmatic side of unit testing through the Arrange, Act, Assert (AAA) pattern, understand the essence of Test-Driven Development (TDD), and write effective, maintainable tests.
  • Apply Boundary Value Analysis (BVA) to your testing strategy for more robust software solutions.
  • Each section is capped with quizzes and practical exercises, reinforcing your learning and ensuring you can apply these critical testing methodologies in real-world scenarios.

What You Will Need

To ensure a seamless learning experience, participants should have:

  • JDK 21 (or higher)
    You must have Java Development Kit (JDK) 21 or a newer version installed on your machine. The JDK provides the necessary tools, libraries, and runtime environment to develop and run Java applications. It is important to have the appropriate JDK version to ensure compatibility with the course materials and exercises.
  • Java Advanced
    You should have a solid understanding of Java fundamentals. Completion of our “Java Advanced” course or its equivalent is essential.
  • Maven Experience
    You should be familiar with Maven, including installation and practical experience. You’ll be working with Maven-based projects throughout this course. Completion of our “Introduction to Maven” course or its equivalent is essential.
  • IDE Proficiency
    You should be comfortable using a Java Integrated Development Environment (IDE) such as IntelliJ IDEA, Eclipse, or NetBeans. Familiarity with basic tasks within the IDE, such as creating projects, editing code, compiling, and running programs, will be beneficial throughout the course.
  • Git
    You should be able to perform basic Git operations such as committing changes, cloning a repository, creating branches, and pushing code to a remote repository. Additionally, having a GitHub or GitLab account will enable you to collaborate on projects and showcase your work.
  • A desire to learn and apply software testing techniques using JUnit and TDD principles.
