Diffblue Playground is our free-to-use tool that demonstrates the AI behind Diffblue Cover by automatically creating unit tests for any Java code entered into it. A little known capability of this tool is that it can do more than help you juggle writing tests and developing new code—my colleague Jamie Munro and I have discovered that it can also be used to create brand new juggling tricks.
We QA check the technology behind Diffblue Cover every single day by writing unit tests for open source public GitHub Java repositories and working closely with repository owners to learn exactly how our tests work (or don’t) for them.

What do all these issues have in common? To start with, they are all issues that sprung to mind when thinking about customer issues. Which means, these are all issues that customers took to social media or mainstream news to complain about.
