It’s time for a new Stratospheric eBook release 🥳
With this bug as additional motivation, we took the opportunity to invest some time into refactoring and adding a test suite to our sample Todo app for improving code coverage: We’ve added both an integration test to cover the CRUD operations for our
Todo entity and a basic web test for verifying interaction with the OAuth 2 login and for ensuring the crucial pages of our app render properly.
Although there’s no dedicated section in the book about testing (yet), if you’re curious, you can have a sneak peek at the
src/test/resources folder of our application at GitHub.
Once we’ll have finished our current online course efforts, we’ll get back to the subject of testing and dedicate an entire chapter about testing to the book! In the meantime, check out the various articles about testing on Philip’s blog.
Furthermore, with the revision v1.7 of Stratospheric, we changed the following:
- We added Apple M1 processor (ARM64) support for local development by upgrading to the latest Keycloak and LocalStack Docker images, respectively.
- We favored custom properties over Spring profiles for loading beans and configuring the application (see this article for the rationale behind this).
- Basic refactoring efforts for the
TodoController. The previous implementation admittedly was a bit sloppy.
Thanks again for supporting us and our work. Remember, every mailing list subscriber gets 30% off the final price of the eBook.
If you’ve already purchased the eBook, you can now download the latest version at no extra charge in your Leanpub Book Library.
PS: We’re about to upload the next videos for the Stratospheric online course. You can expect more information about this topic in the next few days.
