Testing Asynchronous Applications with Java and Awaitility

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

Writing tests for asynchronous applications has never been much fun as we’re always struggling with the problem how to determine state changes, handle process terminations, dealing with timeouts or failures and stuff like this.

Awaitility eases this process for us offering a nice DSL, rich support for languages like Scala or Groovy and an easy-to-use syntax that’s even more fun when using it with Java 8′s lambda expressions.

In the following short introduction I’d like to demonstrate writing some tests different scenarios.

HTML5 Server Send Events using Node.js or Jetty

Message Driven Beans in Java EE 6

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

In this tutorial we’re going to take a look at the specification and create an example application that transfers some objects via the Java Message Service to a Message-Driven Bean deployed on a GlassFish application server.

If you’re not interested in theory please skip to chapter 6 and directly start creating an application – otherwise we’ll begin with a short introduction into the JMS terminology and the concept of a Message-Driven-Bean..
