Chapter 9. Test Smells

A code smell is a symptom in the code that possibly indicates a deeper problem. It's where we look and think that there must be a better way of doing this. Tests also smell but they smell when they are run. There are different kinds of test smells and I will use the following method on these smells:

  • What is it?

  • How did it come to be?

  • What to do about it?

After reading this chapter, you will be able to identify test smells at an early stage and fight them in order to keep a good and healthy test suite.
