LTS is a next generation educational initiative fostering open source, best in class expertise sharing. Professionals can register at www.luxoft.com or view the webinar via Luxoft’s YouTube channel.

Mutation Testing tries to go beyond code coverage metrics to restore one’s faith in tests. It creates random code changes (‘mutants’) ­– deviations from the original code – and includes them in the test. If the test with a ‘mutated’ code fails, then it can be considered effective. On the other hand, if it succeeds (even with the ‘mutants’ inside the code), it is safe to say that this test is irrelevant.

As a part of the presentation, Nicolas will do a demonstration of PIT, a Java production-grade framework that enables Mutation Testing on a simple code base. If time permits, the presenter will also show how PIT can be integrated with Sonar.
