Dropwizard is hot and ready to serve resources so it’s time to create the first HTTP API endpoint and make our app useful. In this post I will prepare endpoint which return random clean code rule.
In the previous Gradle series post we built Wrapper to execute Gradle tasks without installed version on your machine. It’s time to write some code and make our project useful. In this post Gradle will help us to start a web server.
To make it happened we need:
After the holiday break thanks to the WebOn company I had an opportunity to attend in JavaZone 2015 conference in centre of Oslo.
I will not write about details of the conference. All the information you can check on their cool website. I will focus on my personal impression after the conference.
The first rule of using deprecated classes is to do not use deprecated classes. If you have to use such class then double check how to avoid such situation and find newer implementation of deprecated class (most of the time the new alternative solution is provided). But if you really forced to use deprecated class (e.g. 3rd-party library) then during class compilation (compileJava and compileTestJava Gradle tasks) you will get below warning:
Note: <path_to_your_class_where_deprecated_class_is_used>.java uses or overrides a deprecated API. Note: Recompile with -Xlint:deprecation for details.
I will show you few solutions how to disable this warning.
It’s not a problem to test class for which you can create an instance and execute implemented methods. Little problem starts when you would like to test class without an instance of this class. My way to test abstract classes is to create instance of the class as a mock via Mockito and simulate the behaviour.
This action will protect project developers before using different Gradle version on each development machine and make development environment setup easier for the new contributors.
If you are searching a nice and easy to use tool to work with Java (or any other) project – Gradle was created for it. This is a perfect tool to execute standard operations, such as: compile source code, run tests and build application (jar file).
