I’ve been working hard the last six months teaching my teammates about unit testing, code reviews, SOLID, SCRUM

There are two key components to the technical debt equation:
principal and interest. Quantifying both the principal owed and the

When using JUnit in Spring there are several features added that many developers are not aware of.
First, if you are including the Spring Context in your tests, it becomes an Integration Test, no longer a Unit Test.1. Default Searching of Context File(s)
I have been using JBoss 4.2.3 for over a year right now and really
