Advanced Testing Patterns
An introduction to Frameworks and Tools which help you write tests which more accurately reflect your production environmentDescription
Unit Tests by themselves give no guarantee that your system will work in a production environment. That’s where your code will have to work together with other resources like databases and APIs. Unfortunately, those are the kind of dependencies we try to avoid in tests by using mocking-frameworks. Risky business, because this means we’ll only know if the application really works when you push it to production.
In this session we’ll look at some strategies you can use to test your application without mocking your dependencies away. You’ll discover how tools like Liquibase, TestContainers, WireMock and Spring Cloud Contract can immensely improve your tests so you can deploy your application to production AND sleep at night.
