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.


Aspects of Functional Programming in Java

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Functional programming is a trending topic these days and a lot of Java programmers are hot for the features that modern functional programming languages might offer.

Waiting for Java 8 and native closure support is a nice thing but for now we’re going to take a look at several Java frameworks that are trying to implement typical structures from those functional languages where possible using the capabilities of the Java language to emulate elements like higher-order-functions, closures, options and others …
