Using Assertions in Java Technology

I didn’t know that assertion exist in Java, before I read this article.
It is usefull to test things that should be obvious … but are not when developping. Since there is a built-in facility to turn it off, it is better than traditionnal try/catch that can be reserved for “real world” conditions.
The question is when to make assertions or JUnit tests ?
