Solving Sudoku using java swing and junit

Was working on sudoku puzzles during easter holiday. Became bored, and being the nerd I am decided to practice my swing and created a tool to help solve it.
Keep in mind that this is a “quickie” job, created in couple days work.
Just extract jSudokuSolver.zip and run:

java -jar jSudoku.jar

Comes with one predefined sample.

Feel free to use the source for whatever you wish.
If you want you can clone the git repo http://github.com/kenglxn/JSudoku:

git clone git://github.com/kenglxn/JSudoku.git

I based my implementation on a sudoku puzzle found in a magazine. I picked a puzzle from the magazine and made this the sample. Then i wrote a test to confirm the solver worked for the two axis, and the sub-grid. Then the last test to confirm the solver get’s the expected solution. Code for the test is pasted below.

Heres the sample:

And here’s the sample solved:

This is the recursive method that does all the work:

void solvePuzzle(Integer numberOfEmptyCellsBefore) {
	createWorkingSetOfShallowCopyCells();
	calculatePossibleValuesAndSetCellValues();
	commitChangesToAllCells();

	Integer numberOfEmptyCells = getNumberOfEmptyCellsInGrid();
	if (!numberOfEmptyCells.equals(numberOfEmptyCellsBefore)) {
		solvePuzzle(numberOfEmptyCells);
	}
}

Heres a paste of the junit test that i used to build the logic:

package net.glxn.sudoku;

import org.junit.Assert;
import org.junit.Test;

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Arrays;

public class JSudokuTestCase {
    @Test
    public void shouldSolveforXSibling() {
        String expected = "9";

        JSudoku jSudoku = new JSudoku();
        ArrayList<Cell> xSiblings = jSudoku.textField9.xSiblings;
        ArrayList<String> stringList = new ArrayList<String>();
        stringList.addAll(Arrays.asList("1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8"));

        for (Cell xSib : xSiblings) {
            xSib.setText(stringList.get(0));
            stringList.remove(0);
        }

        jSudoku.solvePuzzle(jSudoku.getNumberOfEmptyCellsInGrid());

        Assert.assertEquals(expected, jSudoku.textField9.getText());
    }

    @Test
    public void shouldSolveforYSibling() {
        String expected = "9";

        JSudoku jSudoku = new JSudoku();
        ArrayList<Cell> ysiblings = jSudoku.textField9.ySiblings;
        ArrayList<String> stringList = new ArrayList<String>();
        stringList.addAll(Arrays.asList("1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8"));

        for (Cell ySib : ysiblings) {
            ySib.setText(stringList.get(0));
            stringList.remove(0);
        }

        jSudoku.solvePuzzle(jSudoku.getNumberOfEmptyCellsInGrid());

        Assert.assertEquals(expected, jSudoku.textField9.getText());
    }

    @Test
    public void shouldSolveforSubGridSibling() {
        String expected = "9";

        JSudoku jSudoku = new JSudoku();
        ArrayList<Cell> ysiblings = jSudoku.textField9.subGridSiblings;
        ArrayList<String> stringList = new ArrayList<String>();
        stringList.addAll(Arrays.asList("1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8"));

        for (Cell ySib : ysiblings) {
            ySib.setText(stringList.get(0));
            stringList.remove(0);
        }

    }

        jSudoku.loadSample();
