Learn a use-case approach for developing Java enterprise applications in a continuously test-driven fashion. With this hands-on guide, authors and JBoss project leaders Andrew Lee Rubinger and Aslak Knutsen show you how to build high-level components, from persistent storage to the user interface, using the Arquillian testing platform and several other JBoss projects and tools.
Through the course of the book, youll build a production-ready software conference tracker called GeekSeek, using source code from GitHub. Rubinger and Knutsen demonstrate why testing is the very foundation of development—essential for ensuring that code is consumable, complete, and correct.
- Bootstrap an elementary Java EE project from start to finish before diving into the full-example application, GeekSeek
- Use both relational and NoSQL storage models to build and test GeekSeeks data persistence layers
- Tackle testable business logic development and asynchronous messaging with an SMTP service
- Expose enterprise services as a RESTful interface, using Java EEs JAX-RS framework
- Implement OAuth authentication with JBosss PicketLink identity management service
- Validate the UI by automating interaction in the browser and reading the rendered page
- Perform full-scale integration testing on the final deployable archive
Take a use-case approach to Enterprise Java development, and discover how to program more effectively. This practical book shows you how to perform continuous development, using a testing platform the authors built with the JBoss community. Known as Arquillian, this platform acts as the missing link between testing and development.
Andrew Lee Rubinger and Aslak Knutsen demonstrate how testing is the very foundation of development—essential for learning and critical for ensuring that code is consumable, complete, and correct. Whether youre learning a new technology, debugging broken behavior, or laying down new code, Arquillian helps you document your project in the form of test cases.
- Discover how testing should not be considered an “optional” part of enterprise development
- Handle common development problems, such as bootstrapping new projects and validating user interfaces
- Learn how to build end-to-end applications in a testable fashion
