What can I tell those guys why it is important to write unit tests even
if you have got integration tests?It's about timely feedback
When do you run the integration tests? The integration tests tell you things (it's a technical term :)) work together, but you need all the things to test, and this normally means feedback on what isn't working comes later. It's better if you know the things you are integrating work independently first, too. Then you're only finding integration issues - if not, then if there's a problem in one thing that prevents integration tests from passing, the other thing isn't getting tested and so feedback on that is further delayed.
