How Simple Is Too Simple To Break

  • 20 Jan, 2012

    The general philosophy is this: if it can't break on its own, it's too simple to break.First example is the getX() method. Suppose the getX() method only answers the value of an instance variable. In that case, getX() cannot break unless either the compiler or the interpreter is also broken. For that reason, don't test getX(); there is no benefit. The same is true of the setX() method, although if your setX() method does any parameter validation or has any side effects, you likely need to test it.
