Playing with JerseyTest (Jersey 2.5.1 and DI)

I’m going to try explaining a trivial REST example. The idea is building a basic schema to start playing with Jersey. When I begin to use some framework, I usually develop a test enviroment for failing fast, and that is what I’m going to do.

The next example has these features:

  • Jersey 2.5.1
  • Dependency Injection
  • JUnit for testing

 
 
Classes:

  • Resource: it will attend the HTTP calls.
  • Service: it’s an interface with two implementations, Impl1 and Impl2.
  • ServiceProvider: it will give the apropiate implementation of Service per each request call in runtime.
  • TestBinder: it set the bindings into the Resource.
import static org.junit.Assert.assertEquals;

import javax.inject.Inject;
import javax.ws.rs.GET;
import javax.ws.rs.Path;
import javax.ws.rs.PathParam;
import javax.ws.rs.core.Application;
import javax.ws.rs.core.Response;

import org.glassfish.hk2.api.Factory;
import org.glassfish.hk2.utilities.binding.AbstractBinder;
import org.glassfish.jersey.process.internal.RequestScoped;
import org.glassfish.jersey.server.ResourceConfig;
import org.glassfish.jersey.test.JerseyTest;
import org.junit.Test;

public class JerseyInjectionTest extends JerseyTest {

	private static final String EXPECTED_CONTENT = "any string :P";

	/**
	 * Checks that the Resource uses Impl1.class
	 */
	@Test
	public void invokeImpl1(){
		invoke(Impl1.class);
	}

	/**
	 * Checks that the Resource uses Impl2.class
	 */
	@Test
	public void invokeImpl2(){
		invoke(Impl2.class);
	}

	/**
	 * Checks that Resource.anyContent has always the value of EXPECTED_CONTENT
	 */
	@Test
	public void checkContent(){
		Response response = target("example/content").request().get();
		assertEquals(EXPECTED_CONTENT, response.readEntity(String.class));
	}

	private <T extends Service> void invoke(Class<T> service){
		final String serviceName = service.getName();
		Response response = target("example/"+serviceName).request().get();
		assertEquals(service.getName(), response.readEntity(String.class));
	}

	/**
	 * Register the Resource and TestBinder in the Application
	 */
	@Override
	protected Application configure() {
		return new ResourceConfig() {
			{
				register(new TestBinder());
				register(Resource.class);
			}
		};
	}

	@Path("/example")
	public static class Resource {

		@Inject
		Service service;
		@Inject
		String anyContent;

		/**
		 * Returns the name of the Service's implementation
		 */
		@GET
		@Path("/{serviceClass}")
		public Response getDynamicInvokedService() {
			return Response.ok(service.getClass().getName()).build();
		}

		/**
		 * Returns always the value of anyContent
		 */
		@GET
		@Path("/content")
		public Response getStaticContent() {
			return Response.ok(anyContent).build();
		}

	}

	/**
	 * This class will help Resource to set the @Inject fields.
	 */
	public static class TestBinder extends AbstractBinder{

		@Override
		protected void configure() {
			bindFactory(ServiceProvider.class).to(Service.class);
			bind(EXPECTED_CONTENT).to(String.class);
		}

	}

	/**
	 * This class will instance a Services's implementation
	 * per each time that the Resource is called.
	 */
	@RequestScoped
	public static class ServiceProvider implements Factory<Service> {

		private final String serviceName;

		public ServiceProvider(@PathParam("serviceClass") String serviceName) {
			this.serviceName = serviceName;
		}

		@Override
		public void dispose(Service arg0) {}

		@Override
		public Service provide() {
			try {
				return (Service) Class.forName(serviceName).newInstance();
			} catch (Exception e) {
				return null;
			}
		}

	}

	/**
	 * Dummy services
	 */
	public static interface Service {}
	public static class Impl1 implements Service {}
	public static class Impl2 implements Service {}

}

Now we can try new features easily.

I hope that helps.
