Mark Wielaard: New GPG key. Finally created a new GPG key using gnupg. The old one was a DSA/1024 bits one and 8 years old. The new one is a RSA/2048 bits one. I will use the new one in the future to sign any release tarballs I might create. pub 2048R/57816A6A 2011-01-29 Key f...

Alexis Moussine-Pouchkine on GlassFish Testing with Maven and JavaDB

In this week's Spotlight, we're highlighting Alexis Moussine-Pouchkine's recent post, Testing with the GlassFish Maven plugin and JavaDB Embedded. Alexis begins by referring back to some of his earlier posts, and showing how they're related to his current discussion: Having GlassFish v3 usable in embedded mode made it easy to create a maven plugin with multiple goals (see this previous entry). This in turn makes it easy to configure the plugin for maven-driven unit testing. Alexis goes illustrates how to do this with a code snippet that embeds the Maven plugin. Most business applications that utilize an application server (for example, GlassFish) are going to also interface with a database. One of the advantages of the GlassFish Maven plugin is that you can configure it (within your pom.xml file) such that testing can be repeated without your having to stop and restart the app server. Working with a database, however, add complexity. In particular, if the testing requires stopping and restarting the database, then the automation gained by embedding Maven is basically lost: you still have to stop and restart a large application each time you need to rerun your test. Solving this problem is the essential point of Alexis's post: This is where JavaDB embedded can come in handy. The trick with an application server like GlassFish is that it's not enough to use the embedded driver (org.apache.der...
