Consistent with our new commitment to being a more technical publication, we jump right in with a tutorial on testing JavaFX. Then we revisit JUnit, with a look at eight really handy featuresfor writing tests that are greatly underused (automated creation and mop-up of temporary files, for example). Next we examinehow to build a test grid for exercising web apps on hundreds of different browser-OS combinations. We move on to stress testing Java EE apps. Finally, we talk with the folks at Atlassian about how they have moved their entire QA department into development—how they did it and why they think it has worked out for them.
This issue begins a new, long-running series for us: coverage of JVM languages. We will introduce one JVM language per issue, starting here with Kotlin, the low-ceremony language developed by the folks at JetBrains.
