JUnit is the de facto standard unit testing library for the Java™ language. JUnit 4 is the first significant release of this library in almost three years. It promises to simplify testing by exploiting Java 5's annotation feature to identify tests rather than relying on subclassing, reflection, and naming conventions. In this article, obsessive code tester Elliotte Harold takes JUnit 4 out for a spin and details how to use the new framework in your own work. Note that this article assumes prior experience with JUnit.
