Hello Ranch Members

I am a beginner in Java language and have done few assignements. Now I want to move to Java white box / automation testing using Junit . I have studied junit and have got an overview of the same. Can someone tell me, how much java skills are required to be a automation tester for java application.

I have basic concepts of java and so far what I have studied, I feel its basic java used in junit test cases and a java beginer can also work as on automation testing. Please reply with your inputs.

Depends: simple testing == simple skillset required. Complicated testing == regular, or, IMO, above-average skills needed. It's not any easier to write good tests than it is to write good "regular" code, and can sometimes be a good deal more complicated once you move into the realm of mocking.

Sadagi,
Just like any other coding, it can be simple or difficult. Testing Java code can be easy. Testing complex Java code that relies on MQ and Web Services requires significantly more skills. Basically, "it depends."
