Test-Driven Java Development

7429OS_Test-Driven Java DevelopmentI’m happy to announce that the Test-Driven Java Development book wrote by Alex Garcia and me has just been published by Packt Publishing. It was a long, demanding, but very rewarding journey that resulted in a very comprehensive hands-on material for all Java developers interested in learning or improving their TDD skills.

If you liked my articles on this subject I am sure that you’ll find this book very useful. It contains extensive tutorials, guidelines and exercises for all Java developers eager to learn how to successfully apply TDD practices.

Writing a blog like this requires a lot of time. By purchasing a copy of the book you will not only get a valuable material but also allow me to continue writing new articles. Posts in this blog are only a fraction of what you will find in the book.

You can download a sample or purchase your own copy directly from Packt or Amazon.

  • Delete an existing book

  • Display details of the selected book
  • Delete all books
