|We can get a unit
testing framework for Java easy enough. The one we will be using here is one which runs as an applet and is
compiled with Sun's 1.0.2 JDK compiler. This code should run on most browsers.
We will create a test suite
of three tests to just test the unit test framework. They are a test which passes, a test which fails due to a
bad computation, and a test which aborts because some unexpected exception occurs.
The applet in the right column
is our unit test framework, click run tests to see if it works. The source code is available
Things are going well,
we have our unit
testing framework, story cards, and we are ready to do our spike solution. After that we can begin to estimate
our project scope and create a schedule with a release planning meeting.
