We all know testing is important. Unfortunately, even the best intentions are often crushed by slow and brittle tests hindering development more than they actually help.
But this must not necessarily be the case. In this talk I want to present some simple techniques helping you to write better tests for your Eclipse plugins. In particular, the following topics will be covered:
- how to write maintainable tests that don't break on every change.
- how tests help you writing better code.
- how to speedup your test suite.
- how to avoid integration tests.
