The new major version of the programmer-friendly testing framework for Java 8


JUnit 5 is the next generation of JUnit. The goal is to create an up-to-date foundation for developer-side testing on the JVM. This includes focusing on Java 8 and above, as well as enabling many different styles of testing.

JUnit 5 is the result of JUnit Lambda and its crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.

The JUnit 5 team published Release Candidate 2 on July 30, 2017, and is currently working on additional release candidates, and ultimately a GA release (see Roadmap for details).
