Learn how to debug your unit tests


  • Some Java programming experience. Understand the basic of creating and assigning variables, using logic comparisons, and are able to create simple class objects.
  • Able to use the Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (free to install and use!).
  • Able to create simple methods in Java – understanding of flow control (if-else, while, for, foreach) and assignment of values to variables.


Through the use of hands-on work, you will learn how to create and work with unit tests in Java using the Eclipse integrated development environment. Get professional tips on creating, debugging, and improving your tests in a practical way.

The introduction uses a two iteration cycle to create unit tests that address the product code as it is being developed, giving you the basis for not only creating and improving your unit testing ability, but also pointing the way towards exercising these new concepts in BDD (Business/Behavior Driven Development) or TDD (Test Driven Development).

We do more than just talk about how to do this, we provide step-by-step labs detailing how to create your automation and how to improve it as we progress.

For this course, starter code projects are supplied, as well as finished projects you can adapt to fit your needs, or use for reference for further projects.

This course is designed this to help those who want to expand their capabilities in creating software test automation.

Whether you are a student, a manual tester, or are already a software test professional, this course can help you become more effective in your role.
