Elasticsearch Integration Testing with Java

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

When building up search engines, indexing tons of data into a schema-less, distributed data store, Elasticsearch has always been a favourite tool of mine.

In addition to its core features, it also offers tools and documentation for us developers when we need to write integration tests for our Elasticsearch powered Java applications.

In the following tutorial I’d like to demonstrate how to implement a small sample application using Elasticsearch under the hood and how to write integration-tests with these tools for this application afterwards.


Java EE: Setting up and Testing Form-Based JDBC Authentication with Arquillian and Maven

Sunday, December 21st, 2014

Especially when it comes to testing, setting up a decent environment for a secured Java EE web application isn’t always an easy thing to do.

In the following tutorial I’d like to demonstrate how to create a secured web application using form-based authentication and a JDBC realm to fetch users and roles and how to run the application in an embedded container for testing and development.

Additionally I’d like to show how to write and run integration tests to verify the security setup using a setup of Maven, Embedded GlassFish, Arquillian, jUnit and rest-assured.


A short Introduction to ScalaTest

Sunday, January 13th, 2013

ScalaTest is an excellent framework to write concise, readable tests for your Scala or Java code with less effort.

In addition it integrates well with a variety of frameworks like JUnit, TestNG, Ant, Maven, sbt, ScalaCheck, JMock, EasyMock, Mockito, ScalaMock, Selenium, Eclipse, NetBeans, and IntelliJ.

In the following short tutorial we’re going to write some tests using ScalaTest exploring features like rich matchers, BDD syntax support or web tests using Selenium/Webdriver.
