JUnit Recipes: Practical Methods for Programmer Testing
J.B.Rainsberger, Scott Stirling
"Wow!" on two accounts: 1. I'm actually giving a 10 horseshoe rating to a book, and 2. "JUnit Recipes" is a very thorough and comprehensive encyclopedia of excellent advice and examples on almost every coding sitution I've ever wanted to test with JUnit.

J. B. Rainsberger has compiled a 700 page collection of scores of excellent recipes written in pattern-like fashion, clearly laying out testing problems in wont of solutions and the practical recipes for solving the problems, including annotated code examples, step-by-step instructions, and plenty of quality explanations.

"JUnit Recipes" is destined to be a classic, and has earned a most prominent place on my bookshelf, as I'm certain I'll be referencing it frequently for new and better ideas on formulating JUnit tests.

What's that? You'd like to borrow my copy of "JUnit Recipes?" No, get your own.
