You know you *should* be unit testing. So why aren't you doing it? If you're new to unit testing, if you find unit testing tedious, or if you're just not seeing the payoff for the effort you put into it, keep reading.
The Art of Unit Testing, Second Edition guides you step by step from writing your first simple tests to developing robust test sets that are maintainable, readable, and trustworthy. You'll master the foundational ideas and quickly move to high-value subjects like mocks, stubs, and isolation, including frameworks such as Moq, FakeItEasy and Typemock Isolator. You'll explore test patterns and organization, working with legacy code, and even "untestable" code. Along the way, you'll learn about integration testing and techniques and tools for testing databases and other technologies.
- How to create readable, maintainable, trustworthy tests
- Fakes, Stubs, mock objects, and isolation frameworks
- Simple Dependency Injection techniques
- Refactoring techniques for legacy code for testability
- Working with .NET tools, including NUnit, Moq, FakeItEasy and Typemock Isolator
- Differences between proxy based and profiler based isolation (mocking) frameworks

The examples in the book use C#, but will benefit anyone using a statically typed language such as Java or C++. This book is a revised and expanded second edition of the bestseller The Art of Unit Testing (Manning 2009).
