Testing

Episode 74. Unit and…Integration Tests, JaCoCo, Docker and Coverage (and more!)

In this episode we interview Janine Patterson on her talk of “Integration Test Coverage with JaCoCo” and dive into the nuances of Units vs Integration tests. We dive into Gherkin sentences as we use Cucumber, and challenges of integration tests (hint… use Docker). We also dive into the best way to execute these (Spring Runner). In all, if you were interested in upping your integration testing game, this is the one episode to listen to!

Episode 69. All I want for Xmas is a million requests per second (Jmeter!)

So it’s the holidays and now we are winding down the year. Even so, sometimes this is the best time to actually do some performance testing. And there’s no better (foss) tool to do so than JMeter! Come and let’s dive into how to use JMeter for those stress and performance testing that needs to get done (you’re doing stress tests right?)

Episode 34. New Year’s (2013) Resolution! Less bugs and more coverage!

Episode 34. New Year’s (2013) Resolution! Less bugs and more coverage!

Ok, so we all celebrated (but may not remember) the end of the old year and the beginning of a new year! This is a time for starting new things, and trying to be a little better. How about starting by looking at our code and squish some bugs! By using findbugs we can easily test for the ‘duh’ (and some not so duh) bugs quickly by looking and automatically analyzing our code. After adding Findbugs, we can then add Emma, which will look and measure our unit test code coverage (if you are into such a thing). These two tools are like the Richard Simmons that let us lose the unwanted bug weight in this new year!

Episode 10. Testing, Testing, 1.2.3! (All about Unit Testing, And Dependency Injection)

For those Unit Testers out there (and those who want to do more unit tests), this podcast is for you! We cover JUnit in general, and explain how to shoe-in unit tests in current (and legacy code). We talked about Dependency Injection (and the Concern of Creation), and Mocking (what it is, and how is it used). In all, if you ever wondered why creating unit tests in your current code is hard, or why are people talking about Dependency Injection (DI), come in, and listen!
