I'd like to know if "Pragmatic Unit Testing in Java 8 with JUnit" shows how to make unit testing using just command line instructions, for those who can't use IDEs.
Thank you.

Greetings Ferdinand,

Thanks for the question. It does not cover command line testing, unfortunately. However, the good news is that it's reasonably easy to run your tests from the command line:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2235276/how-to-run-junit-test-cases-from-the-command-line

More often than not, a build tool like Maven or Ant is your best bet to controlling and running unit tests from the command line; those tools were unfortunately out of scope for the book, but again the good news is that it's pretty easy to set up unit testing in them.

Regards,
Jeff
