Unit testing and Test-Driven-Development (TDD) are an important part of every Agile software testing strategy. One of the issue associated to these techniques is the coupling between the source code and its tests. In his blog post, Tingan Ho presents a testing strategy, called Baseline Testing, that should solve the coupling issues with TDD.

Equivalence partitioning is a software testing technique that can be used during test design to divide the test data into sets of equivalent data called partitions from which you can build your test cases. In this extract from her book “Guide to Advanced Software Testing”, Anne Mette Hass provides an introduction to the concept of equivalence partitioning.
Even if they are at the basis of the software testing pyramid and they are at the heart of the Test-Driven Development (TDD) approach, unit tests are still a controversial topic in software development and some people event consider that most unit testing is waste. In his blog post, Bas Dijkstra explains why he thinks that unit testing should be the basis of any solid automation strategy.
JUnit 5 is the next generation of JUnit. The goal of this upcoming version is to create an up-to-date foundation for developer-side testing on the JVM. The evolution includes focusing on Java 8 and above, as well as enabling many different styles of testing. In his article, Nicolai Parlog explains how you should write tests with JUnit 5.
