Did you know that JUnit 5 is almost two years old?

However, a large number of Java projects are still tested with JUnit 4, which came out ... 13 years ago! A lot of things have changed since 2006, Java went from 5th to 12th version! Isn't it time to bring our tests up to date?

The JUnit team took advantage of this opportunity to completely rethink the framework. Many features have been added or reworked in order to fit with the new paradigms of the Java ecosystem.

During this talk, we'll see that even though JUnit 5 introduced many changes, the mechanisms of retro compatibility guarantee an easy and progressive migration.
