The author was asked to put together examples of how to mock Java constructs well know for their testability issues. He calls these techniques unusual mocking. Developers practicing TDD or BDD should be aware of testability problems behind these constructs and avoid them when designing tests and modules.
Sometime it happens that when you configure a Maven mojo plugin, the given configuration doesn't apply or doesn't work as expected, but debugging Maven mojo plugin sources is now very easy with NetBeans 8. This short article shows you how.

Use version controlling/source control even if one developer exists. This issue brings change tracking and versioning of the application continuously.
Celery ships with an configuration option called CELERY_ALWAYS_EAGER which causes all tasks to be executed immediately instead of being asynchronously executed on workers. This can be very useful for unit tests. Instead of running a real message queue and separate worker processes, your unit tests can execute all in one process and still run the necessary tasks.
