Testing EJB3.0 Presentation at Parleys

December 17, 2009 Leave a comment

Szczecin JUG added to Parlays my presentation about Testing EJB3.0 (though the presentation should really be named: Testing and testing EJB3.0), that I was doing last year at Java4People conference in Szczecin, Poland.

Presentation is in polish language though, so don’t be surprised :). Presentation can be reached here.

Back from Javarsovia2009

July 7, 2009 4 comments

Two weeks before Javarsovia were crazy as hell. Not only did I have to move out completely from my apartment (because of its total redecoration and all the dirty and messy work that are triggered because of that), but also make final preparations for my wedding to come (got only 2 months of freedom left 🙂 ), stay at work for 10-11 hours per day (deployment and small misunderstandings with the client) and in the meantime prepare for Javarsovia event. So to all people I was consistently ignoring and not replying emails and/or comments, I apologies, but I was busy. Really, really busy. I will do my best, not to make it happen again.

Back to Javarsovia. Despite the fact that I was actually finishing the presentation at 3 a.m. on Saturday, from what I can read on the web [1], I can count my presentation as a success. So I’m glad you all like it. To all the people who wanted to hear a little bit more then just basics – I’m sorry, it was planned, but there was simply no time (one hour is not enough:)).

Slides will be soon published on Javarsovia page, but I will also put them here on my blog, after translating them into English.

Few people asked me to finally publish THTemplate I presented. It is my pleasure to inform you that the template code is already on the web! I will make separate post about it, with more details, but for all eager who want to try it, here are few things you should know:

  • project finally got a name: Wicket Cool 🙂 (thus THTemplate is obsolete)
  • template I told about during presentation can be accessed by simply running

svn checkout wicketcool-read-only

  • to create archetype simply do this:

svn checkout wicketcool-read-only
cd wctemplate
mvn archetype:create-from-project -Darchetype.filteredExtensions=java

  • now to create your very own project, based on that arechtype, run below in your command line

mvn archetype:generate -Darchetype=wctemplate-archetype -DarchetypeCatalog=local -DgroupId=some-group-id-DartifactId=some-artefact-id -Dversion=some-version

And that should be it. You are ready to go. More about Wicket Cool project soon, but right now you can test drive the project template.

As it turns out my proposal for JAVArsovia conference was accepted by the committee and thus I am now a official speaker at JAVArsovia2009, which will take place 4th of July 2009, Warsaw, Poland.

I will try to demonstrate how cool Apache Wicket is and how it supports TDD programming.

Hope to see you there.

Testing and Testable Code Presentation

Two days ago I was doing presentation titled “Testing and testable code” at Wroclaw University of Technology. If interested how really start with TDD in your projects, how to keep your code with simple design and always maintain “code that talks”, I encourage you to check out the presentation. I might record the audio for this presentation if anyone interested. Let me know.

On 26th May 2009 I will talk about “Testable code” at Wroclaw University of Technology.  Presentation is inspired by Misko Hevery‘s blog, Joshua Bloch unofficial Java Bible (“Effective Java”), easyb way of testing,  Szczepan Feber‘s beautiful tests talk at GeeCON and my personal experience.
