Generating JUnit Tests with Java, EvoSuite and Maven

Sunday, February 28th, 2016

Generating test suites for existing code allows us to verify the behaviour of an application before we’re making changes to its code base or for regression testing.

In the following short tutorial I’d like to demonstrate how to derive test suites from an existing Java application using EvoSuite and the EvoSuite Maven plug-in.

EvoSuite offers some nice features like running in a sandbox to avoid dangerous operations, virtual file-system and network and optimizing of different coverage criteria.
