A Glimpse of Awaitility

Today I had a task to first deploy a webapp and then verify whether it was properly deployed. Obviously there are things to consider:

  • it takes time till the app is deployed and started,
  • it is hard to say how long it takes.

One solution would be to wait for some safe time (2 minutes? 3 minutes?) and then check if the app responds to requests. Yes, but it would be definitely more efficient to do it in some kind of a loop, so you do not waste too much time if, for example, everything is up and ready in 1 minute 20 seconds.

From JUnit to TestNG - migration story

I've joined a new team recently and (to my horror and dismay ;) I've found out that we use JUnit! Well, I just had to do something about it, namely switch to TestNG ASAP! :)

This used to be my blog. I moved to long time ago.
