Testing and validating REST services in Java is harder than in dynamic languages such as Ruby and Groovy. REST Assured is an open source software testing tool that brings the simplicity of using these languages into the Java domain.

Software testing metrics can be very difficult: there are thousands of them out there, it is hard to know which ones are important, many are hard to collect, its often difficult to extract meaning from the metrics, and everyone has an opinion on the usefulness of any metric that you might choose. So, what is one person to do?
The “refactor” step in Test-Driven Development (TDD) is deceptively simple: you just have to improve the code, without changing what it does, right? And the experts make it look so easy: “Look”, they say, “here’s some duplication, which I will remove by “insert magic incantation here”. But how should you decide which “duplication” to remove first? What happens if you fix the “wrong” smell? And how do you even see that duplication in the first place?
With the rapid implementation of Agile development in most IT environments, the traditional roles of functional QA managers are changing. Testing is now the responsibility by the product team; day-to-day testing tasks and accountabilities are largely owned by the product team and defect status is discussed on a quick daily meeting. But yet all of the testing personnel report into the QA Manager from an organizational viewpoint.
This tutorial presents how to do Test-Driven Development (TDD) for a Spring Boot application and how some of the latest Spring Boot annotations and utilities make that easy. Ever wonder how to test a hard problem like caching or write an integration test without making an external API call? Or come across a situation where testing something was so hard that it never got tested?
Page-Object pattern is very commonly used during software testing when you use test automation frameworks. However, as the scale of the framework grows, there is a limitation on how much reusability really happens. It can inherently become very difficult to separate the test intent from the business domain. This presentation discusses the issues with the Page-Object pattern and the solution that you can implement – Business Layer – Page – Object pattern, to help your code staying DRY.
An often overshadowed aspect of building great products is ensuring these products are reliable and perform as expected. Similar to physical products, the quality of a digital product has a large impact on the customer/user experience. Typically a quality assurance (QA) or software testing team leads this effort. But, what is the difference between QA and testing, and does it matter? We believe so, and so should you.
