Publisher Comments:

As iOS apps become increasingly complex and business-critical, iOS developers must ensure consistently superior code quality. This means adopting best practices for creating and testing iOS apps. Test-Driven Development (TDD) is one of the most powerful of these best practices. Test-Driven iOS Development is the first book 100% focused on helping you successfully implement TDD and unit testing in an iOS environment.

 

Long-time iOS/Mac developer Graham Lee helps you rapidly integrate TDD into your existing processes using Apple’s Xcode 4 and the OCUnit unit testing framework. He guides you through constructing an entire Objective-C iOS app in a test-driven manner, from initial specification to functional product. Lee also introduces powerful patterns for applying TDD in iOS development, and previews powerful automated testing capabilities that will soon arrive on the iOS platform. Coverage includes

  • Understanding the purpose, benefits, and costs of unit testing in iOS environments
  • Mastering the principles of TDD, and applying them in areas from app design to refactoring
  • Writing usable, readable, and repeatable iOS unit tests
  • Using OCUnit to set up your Xcode project for TDD
  • Using domain analysis to identify the classes and interactions your app needs, and designing it accordingly
  • Considering third-party tools for iOS unit testing
  • Building networking code in a test-driven manner
  • Automating testing of view controller code that interacts with users
  • Designing to interfaces, not implementations
  • Testing concurrent code that typically runs in the background
  • Applying TDD to existing apps
  • Preparing for Behavior Driven Development (BDD)

 

The only iOS-specific guide to TDD and unit testing, Test-Driven iOS Development covers both essential

concepts and practical implementation.

 

Synopsis:

As iOS apps become increasingly complex and business-critical, developers must adopt more effective processes for creating and testing them. Test-driven development (TDD) is one of today's most powerful best practices for improving development and ensuring superior code quality. Now, for the first time, there's a complete guide to successfully implementing TDD and unit testing in iOS environments. Long-time iOS and Macintosh developer Graham Lee shows how these techniques can be effectively integrated into existing processes; how to use Apple and third-party tools to implement them, and how to maximize the value of testing without slowing down development. A complete case study example guides developers through constructing an entire iOS app in a test-driven manner. Lee shows how to use TDD to overcome many common iOS development challenges, and how to test app components including models, domain logic, and view controllers. Building on his example, he identifies powerful patterns for applying TDD in iOS environments, and previews powerful automated testing capabilities that have recently come to the iOS platform or are expected to arrive soon. The only iOS-specific book on TDD and unit testing, Test-Driven iOS Development covers both essential concepts and practical implementation. From start to finish, it reflects the realities working iOS developers face - and helps them write code that's clean and robust enough to meet virtually any requirement
