Hamcrest, JUnit, Mockito, IntelliJ IDEA, Gradle, and java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.hamcrest.Matcher.describeMismatch
Ever included Mockito in your project and lost the nice feedback from Hamcrest? And only when running your unit tests from IntelliJ IDEA? Instead of a message describing what you should fix, you see
I have. More than once and been very frustrated. These are tools I like. Not getting good messages upsets me.

If you are like me, then you will feel a lump in your stomach when you realize that you need a regular expression. I think that the saying “If you have a problem that requires a regular expression, then you have two problems” is very appropriate most of the time.
It turns out that you need a some regular expressions when you are working with Cucumber. In this case, they are usually not very complicated.

Writing comments in a program is often considered a good habit. I hear people talking about code as “good and well commented”. This always makes me skeptic. What do people mean with “well commented”? It turns out, they often mean that every method has a lot of comments.

A lot of people want to automate testing of their web applications. This is definitely a good thing. But it happens that they focus more on the tooling than the testing.
