Testing with Mockito

During class, we have been doing many testing methods including Junit 5 and for the past two weeks we have been using Mockito, so for today’s blog, I want to focus more on the framework and testing with Mockito. Before we get started let us talk about what is mocking. Mocking is a process of developing the objects that act as the mock or clone of the real objects. In another word, mocking is a technique where mock objects are used instead of real objects. The purpose is to isolate and focus on the code being tested. Mock uses objects such as Fakes, Stubs, and mocks. A fake object has working implementation but takes shortcuts which makes them not suitable for production. Stub object usually does not respond to anything outside that is programmed in for the test. Mocks are objects that are preprogrammed with expectations which form a specification of the call that is called to receive. Now let us move on to what Mockito is, Mockito is a java based mocking framework that internally use

Apprenticeship Patterns Blog - Expand Your Bandwidth

For this week’s blog post, I read the section  “Expand your bandwidth” from chapter five of the book Apprenticeship Patterns by Dave Hoover and Adewale Oshineye. The main reason this pattern was Interesting was because of a quote that stood to me. It was “[L]earning about what we don’t know is often more important than doing things we already know how to do.” This quote is so accurate. Especially in a technology-driven world, it is always evolving. so, developers must learn new technologies and software’s all the time. It is important to prioritize learning what you do not know. Later in the section author mentioned the overwhelming aspect of learning new information and expanding your ability, it is important to expand your knowledge and experiences in multiple dimensions such as: reading a book, social media, blogs Groups, and other academic resources. The second half of the pattern talked about how Once you understand how to Expand Your Bandwidth, the next step is to understand wh

Sprint 2 Retrospective Here is the Link to the repositories that contains everything we worked on Sprint-2. Backend, Frontend, Event system, and Keycloak.

What worked well / did not work well For the Sprint, I worked mostly on the Event System components with the Backend person. We figured out how to properly se

Apprenticeship Patterns Blog - Record What You Learn

For this week’s blog post, I read the section  “Record What You Learn” from chapter five of the book Apprenticeship Patterns by Dave Hoover and Adewale Oshineye. The section started with a quote by Atul Gawnde in which it states: “You should not also underestimate the power of writing itself....You can lose your larger sense of purpose. But writing lets you step back and think through a problem” This reminds me a lot of myself because I am usually the one that never writes anything down, Instead I will believe that I can remember it. However, later I forget it. As I get older, I realize that recording something is useful, for example, if we are doing a project sometimes it is a good idea to draw diagrams and analyze through writing which helps to organize and plan it out. The section mainly talked about the practice of keeping a diary or a journal that will be useful throughout your career. The author also mentioned avoiding falling into the trap of just writing down your lesson and fo

Apprenticeship Patterns Blog - A Different Road

For this week’s blog post, I read the section  “A Different Road ” from chapter three of the book Apprenticeship Patterns by Dave Hoover and Adewale Oshineye. The section talked about how taking a different road could be a risky or life-changing event.  Despite this risk, I believe that one should be not afraid to do something different with your life. A change no matter whether they seem good or bad at the time will teach you something new or a new experience that can drive you to push forward. The author started the section by talking about explaining how saying goodbye to the craft can be risky, but  “Even if you leave the road permanently, the values and principles you have developed along the way will always be with you” I think this is very true, no matter the change, the principles you have acquired so far in the career will always be there for you. Currently, I want to talk about the sad reality and risk one may face when one changes a craft. The author talked about how a per

Sprint 1 Retrospective This is our example repository that contains everything we worked on for Sprint 1. Review Docker: Reviewed old projects and main commands for docker. Create Sample Docker projects: Created a sample Docker Project, Did the getting started activities. Repository for event project: The main repository for the event project. Learn About RabbitMQ : Learned RabbitMQ components and Implemented them using Docker. Review Scrum :   Reviewed the scrum guide and understand the process. For the project, I am part of the reporting team. I mainly work on the event system software that sends and receives a message to other systems using the RabbitMQ messaging system interface. I also work with the database person and did make a docker example project and a cheat sheet of all the docker commands. What worked well / did not work well   The thing that worked well for our group is tha
