unit testing in java and jsfunit

Hi,

I was going through below link

http://java.dzone.com/articles/junit-tutorial-beginners


I wonder where i can find info on comparing complex objects and unit testing them not simple arthematic operations.

I am also new to jsfunit where to begin and find good resources on that.


Please advise. Any ideas, resources, sample code highly appreciated. thanks in advance

Can you provide an example of a "complex object" that you are unsure as to how to test?

One possibility is that your complex object implements the .equals() method in an appropriate manner, in which case the unit test is made easy as you can still just use a typical "assertEquals()" junit assertion. Otherwise, you just have multiple assertions for each of the different properties of your complex object. If you can provide an example it would make it much easier to demonstrate the idea.

challenge is at new client projects, when i see them first time i feel them as complex objects which i cannot post here.  But i will follow your advise on assertEquals().

What is JSFUNIT, what for it is used. I never used it. Is it simple to master. Please advise.

jsfunit is just a library for making the testing of JSF applications easier (JSF = JavaServer Faces). If your application isn't JSF or you don't know what this is, then you don't need to worry about jsfunit.

my application is in JSF 2.0. The challenge i am facing in writing the unit test cases is when i click one button in say xyz.xhtml it is going to other page  say abc.xhtml. I need to validate few pages in abc.xhtml to make sure the drop down values, text values are coming as expeted. I do not know how to write test case in this scenario.

I see some examples here
https://source.jboss.org/browse/JSFUnit/trunk/jboss-jsfunit-examples
but not sure how to download and run eclipse in one stroke.

I see couple of example here but not clear exactly what authors did.
