Test - Fixture (Start State)

1 - About

One of the most time-consuming parts of writing tests is writing the code to set the world up in a known state and then return it to its original state when the test is complete. This known state is called the fixture of the test.

A test fixture (also known as a test context) is the set of preconditions or state needed to run a test.

3 - Implementation

The fixture implementation in the frameworks is done through methods that are called before and after each test or test suite. They have names such

  • SetUp and TearDown
  • BeforeClass, AfterClass
