Set custom name for JUnit Parameterized tests

For JUnit parameterized tests, you can add a descriptive name based on the parameter like this:

@Parameters(name="{index}: {0} {1}")
public static Collection<Object[]> data() {
  return Arrays.asList(new Object[][] {
    { "x", "y" },
    { "foo", "bar" },
    { "hello", "world" }

This will output test results like:

[0: x y]
[1: foo bar]
[2: hello world]

Checking XPATH and CSS Selectors in the browser console

There are a couple of magic functions you can use to inspect and parse an HTML document while you’re reading it in the browser.

$x() allows you to check an XPATH. It’s basically a shorthand for document.evaluate(xpath, document);

$$() allows you to check a CSS Selector. It’s basically a shorthand for document.querySelectorAll(css);

On Chrome $x() returns an XPathResult — just like document.evaluate() — which can only be inspected with the function iterateNext(). But on Safari and Firefox $x() will return an Array — just like $$() and document.querySelectorAll().

These shortcut functions can save some typing and mental effort.

Thanks to Andrew Krug from for pointing out $x().
