JUnit 5, released in September of 2017, is the first major release for the popular JUnit testing framework in a little over a decade. I recently presented on JUnit 5 at Lava One Conf in Hawaii in January. If you have heard about JUnit 5, but are not yet familiar with it, you can check out my presentation here, as well as the JUnit 5 User Guides.
While researching for my presentation, one new feature in JUnit 5 really caught my eye was the ability to declare tests on default methods in interfaces. This feature caught my eye because two issues I frequently face are encouraging developers to write automated tests and promoting consistent patterns across the enterprise. In this article we are going to look at how test interfaces can help accomplish both of these goals.
