... without a full set of unit tests (at the very least), you can't guarantee the correctness of a program. To claim that the strong, static type checking constraints in C++, Java, or C# will prevent you from writing broken programs is clearly an illusion (you know this from personal experience). In fact, what we need is
Strong testing, not strong typing.points to note:
- A very concise code sample comparing strong type and weak type language, where weak type loose the semantic on checking variable type – it works as long as it implements the method expected.
- unit test is an extension to complier
