Talk Title: Hamcrest matchers in JUnit 4.4
Also David Beutel will briefly show a nice new feature of JUnit 4.4, Hamcrest matchers, in the hope of provoking some interesting discussions. It provides useful error messages in the test report, and enables more refactoring of duplicate code. It's like a lambda, objectifying test logic, but in Java. It's also a fluent builder API.
David Beutel builds Java web apps at UH, and is always looking for ways to do it better.
The meeting will take place on Wednesday February 27th from 6pm to 8pm.
