Spring Testing Support and Context caching

spring-interview-questions-answers

Spring provides a comprehensive support for unit and integration testing – through annotations to load up a Spring application context, integrate with unit testing frameworks like JUnit and TestNG. Since loading up a large application context for every test takes time, Spring intelligently caches the application context for a test suite – typically when we execute tests for a project, ...

Using PowerMock to Mock Constructors

In my opinion, one of the main benefits of dependency injection is that you can inject mock and/or stub objects into your code in order to improve testability, increase test coverage and write better and more meaningful tests. There are those times, however, when you come across some legacy code that doesn’t use dependency injection and held together by composition ...

Here’s a few tips on how take make testing your code for logical correctness (as opposed to multi-threaded correctness). I find that there are essentially two stereotypical patterns with threaded code: Task orientated – many, short running, homogeneous tasks, often run within the Java 5 executor framework, Process orientated – few, long running, heterogeneous tasks, often event based (waiting on ...

Introduction I love automated testing. In a rare diversion into op-ed1 I thought a put few thoughts (read – opinions) together. Before I start on how best to compose your tests, I briefly ask – What are the reasons for testing?

In this series we have already learnt to set up a basic Spring MVC application and learnt how to handle forms in Spring MVC. Now it is time to take on some more involved topics. However, before we venture into deeper waters, let’s get some basics set up. Unit testing I am no TDD evangelist. There I said it. I ...

Categorize tests to reduce build time

apache-maven-logo

Before we progress with the main content of the article, let’s get a few definitions out of the way. Unit tests Unit tests are tests that are small (tests one use case or unit), run in memory (do not interact with database, message queues etc.), repeatable and fast. For our conversation let us restrict these to JUnit based test cases ...

Moving Beyond Core Hamcrest in JUnit

hamcrest-logo

In the post Improving On assertEquals with JUnit and Hamcrest I introduced use of Hamcrest with JUnit. I then looked at JUnit’s Built-in Hamcrest Core Matcher Support. In this post, I look at how to apply Hamcrest’s non-core matchers with JUnit. These non-core matchers are NOT included with JUnit by default, but are available by including a Hamcrest JAR in ...

JUnit’s Built-in Hamcrest Core Matcher Support

junit-logo

In the post Improving On assertEquals with JUnit and Hamcrest, I briefly discussed Hamcrest “core” matchers being “baked in” with modern versions of JUnit. In that post, I focused particularly on use of JUnit’s assertThat(T, Matcher) static method coupled with the Hamcrest core is() matcher that is automatically included in later versions of JUnit. In this post, I look at ...
