Getting Started with JUnit 5: Test your Spring MVC Application with it

In this post, we described how to use JUnit 5 to test your Spring MVC application with Maven. Setup Maven Dependencies We can get the required dependencies by declaring the junit-jupiter-api (version 5.x) dependency in our pom.xml file. This dependency provides the public API for writing tests and extensions. If we are using an IDE that is bundled with an older JUnit 5 version, it throws an exception when we try to run our unit tests by using our IDE. We can fix this problem by adding the following dependency to our POM file: The junit-platform-launcher provides a public API for configuring and launching tests. The API is typically used by IDEs and build tools. To test Spring application, we…

Create Unit Testing Cases in Zend Framework

A solid unit test suite is essential for ongoing development in large projects, especially those with many people involved. Going back and manually testing every individual component of an application after every change is impractical. Your unit tests will help alleviate that by automatically testing your application’s components and alerting you when something is not working the same way it was when you wrote your tests. The Zend Framework 2 API uses PHPUnit, and so does this tutorial application. A detailed explanation of unit testing is beyond the scope of this tutorial, so we will only provide sample tests for the components in the pages that follow. This tutorial assumes that you already have PHPUnit installed. Setting up the Tests…

Unit Testing of Spring MVC Controllers

After all the services, DAO’s and support classes are tested then it’s time for the controller. Generally this is hard to test and most developers (based on observation) would rather just test it via Selenium or worse, by hand. That can work but it makes testing logic branches difficult and not to mention it’s time consuming. Plus no active developer would be willing to wait for browser tests to run before checking in code. Luckily the Spring MVC Test project can do full controller testing via unit tests, it was such a success that it’s now in Spring MVC core as of version 4.0.5. Getting Ready We can get the required testing dependencies by adding the following dependency declarations to…
