High End Unit Testing Services


Through unit testing we make sure the smallest testable part of an application we develop behaves as expected from a functional perspective. The unit can be anything from an entire module or interface to an individual procedure or function, depending on the case under consideration. Component integration is often tested at this stage. 

To identify bugs when they are the least costly to fix and prevent them from slipping into the production stage, we run unit tests throughout the entire development process. The experienced specialists at AROBS write and execute unit tests with professionalism, making sure the project objectives are met on time and within budget. They focus on identifying as many bugs as possible immediately after being introduced in the process.

The testing technique we apply in unit testing depends on the goal pursued. Manual testing and sometimes automated integration tests are the most appropriate for finding bugs, while regressions can be detected best with automated integration test and sometimes with manual testing.

 

Best Unit Testing Practices Applied at AROBS

 
AROBS follows well established industry methodologies, best practices, and industry standards, and relies on effective verification tools such as JUnit and xUnit. Of the best practices for unit testing followed at AROBS we mention: 

  • Writing the tests in reverse order of dependency. This means we would first handle the methods with the fewest dependencies, then move gradually up the scale until reaching those with the highest number of dependencies.
  • Keeping tests as logically simple as possible, with no decisions at all when possible.
  • Keeping each unit test independent of all the other tests.
  • Applying clear names to all unit tests and thoroughly document them.
  • Using appropriate techniques to measure the effectiveness of all unit tests.
  • Creating appropriate unit tests for all units, regardless of their visibility.
  • Targeting exceptions with unit tests.

Your main benefits from relying on unit testing are:

  • Finding problems before they become chronic. If performed correctly, these tests can identify problems soon after they are created, preventing them from causing a cascade of related issues.
  • Shortening the development life-cycle. The issues identified by unit tests help programmers re-factor code as early as possible in the development process and produce modules that work as expected.
  • Gaining a deep understanding of the problems in the code from the unit test documentation. This is a major benefit for developers looking, who get a clear picture of the problems they must solve.
  • Simplifying integration testing. Testing the parts of a system and then the entire system makes the integration of the parts easier.  

The AROBS unit testing services take a big burden off your shoulder, enabling your developers to focus on what they do best.
