We are entering a world where everything must be done quicker. You must deliver code faster. You must deploy faster. How can you deliver and deploy faster without compromising your professionalism? How can you be sure you are delivering what your client has asked you?
In short, testing is the only way to be sure you're delivering what someone asked you to. Often we use BDD Tools such as FitNesse which gained popularity over the recent years
There are a number of integration / BDD test tools out there that help you deliver a high quality software through tests. Its easy to pick up any tool from just their tutorials and start writing tests. But as I found out the hard way, this can quickly spiral into a state where the tests are giving you and your team hell and are worth less than the value the tests are delivering.
Using FitNesse and Junit as examples, I will share things that I have learnt working on large enterprise and vendor systems and help you avoid your own path to hell.
