Java Adapter Pattern explanation

Let us return to the consideration of structural design patterns. This time we will look at a design pattern called Adapter (also called the Wrapper along with the Facade pattern). This article will talk about the following: Object adapter Class Adapter The difference between the adapter and the facade An example of using an adapter

Rest-Assured best practice

Testing RESTful Web Services can be cumbersome because you have to deal with low-level concerns which can make your tests verbose, hard to read and to maintain.

Use Reusable RequestSpecifications

REST-assured: useful tips

In this article, I gathered useful tips on using REST-assured, one of the most common Java libraries to automate REST-API testing. All examples are vital, they are collected from my practice of conducting code-review in more than 10 projects with automation tests. Take end-points to a separate place. It would seem that this is obvious.

Introduction in Cucumber with examples

Integrate cucumber with spring

1. Overview This is a quick guide to integrate the Cucumber testing framework with Spring. Cucumber is a very powerful testing framework written in the Ruby programming language, which follows the BDD (behavior-driven development) methodology. Its intent is to enable developers to write high-level use cases in plain text that can be verified by non-technical stakeholders, and turn

API Functional Tests with Cucumber and Rest-assured

API Functional Tests with Cucumber and Rest-assured On projects where multiple systems undergo development at the same time, it’s crucial to maintain a clear picture of how they should interact. We commonly have a back-end system providing a REST API to multiple front-ends (browsers, mobile apps, chatbots, IoT, etc.). Because it will likely change over

Integrate Cucumber framework with QMetry

Integrate Cucumber framework with QMetry Introduction Cucumber is one of the tools for running automated tests. It combines business specification and test documentation into one – which results into executable specification. Due to this collaboration, it encourages teams to keep their organization’s business goals in center. Automated testing through Cucumber helps teams avoid heavy regressions
