In the course Java for Testers you will learn the basic syntax of Java and how to use it when writing JUnit test scripts and Cucumber scenarios.
Attention is paid to the various data types in Java and the flow control constructions. Also the use of classes and objects with methods, parameter passing and private and public data is discussed. And exception handling in Java and the Java collection framework are treated as well.
The program of the course Java for Testers also discusses to the design of JUnit tests, the structure of JUnit tests, the annotations and assert statements used, the execution of JUnit tests in an Eclipse environment as well as the reporting on the outcome of the tests.
Finally the Cucumber Framework will be discussed and the mini language Gherkin and the integration with JUnit. The demos and exercises in the course Java for Testers are done in a JUnit environment and are therefore directly applicable when writing test scripts.
Attention is also paid to the automation of tests in the context of setting up continuous integration. The projects are built in the dependency management tool Maven. The course Java for Testers provides a good basis for participating in the course Web Testing with Selenium .
The course Java for Testers is intended for experienced testers that want to learn how to use Java, JUnit and Cucumber for writing test scripts.
Experience with testing is required to join this course. Programming experience is beneficial for the understanding of the concepts but is not required.
The course has a hands-on nature. The theory is treated on the basis of presentation slides and is interspersed with practical exercises. The course material is in English. The course times are from 9.30 up and to 16.30.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
