Example text

We're no longer locked into one specific class. If both Fruit and Vegetable implement IProduce then you can assign an instance of either class to item now that it's typed as IProduce. Making Runtime Decisions When you declare a variable with a type of a concrete class, you generally are making a compile-time decision as to which implementation to use. That is okay when you know absolutely that you want to use only that one implementation. However, consider an example in which an application uses a fallback plan for network communications.

The test case class constructor should always accept a string parameter and then call the super constructor, passing it the parameter value. TestCase; public class SimpleTest extends TestCase { public function SimpleTest(method:String) { super(method); } } } Part I: Successful Projects 31 32 Part I: Successful Projects The class should then define one or more methods that run a test. Each test should result in an assertion. An assertion is what actually determines the success of the test. You can run an assertion using any of the assert methods inherited by the Assert class which is the superclass of TestCase: • assertEquals(): Tests if all the parameters are equal (equivalent to an == operation) • assertStrictlyEquals(): Tests if all the parameters are strictly equal (equivalent to an === operation) • assertTrue(): Test if the parameter is true • assertFalse(): Test if the parameter is false (passes test if the parameter is false) • assertUndefined(): Test if the parameter is undefined (passes test if the parameter is undefined) • assertNull(): Test if the parameter is null (passes test if the parameter is null) • assertNotNull(): Test if the parameter is not null • fail(): Though technically not an assertion, the fail() method explicitly causes the test to fail, which can be useful when you need to test for a failure.

The difficulty with that strategy is that it requires the development team to be responsible for testing the application. If developers could handle testing in addition to development and bug fixes then there wouldn't be a need for a QA team in the first place, so it might almost seem ridiculous to suggest that developers should have to test an application. However, if developers can run automated tests that verify that an application continues to work correctly from a programmatic standpoint then that doesn't require a great deal more work on the part of the developer, and it enables developers to quickly identify errors before sending a build to QA.
