Overview of this book

Gradle is an advanced and modern build automation tool. It inherits the best elements of the past generation of build tools, but it also differs and innovates to bring terseness, elegance, simplicity, and the flexibility to build. Right from installing Gradle and writing your first build file to creating a fully-fledged multi-module project build, this book will guide you through its topics in a step-by-step fashion. You will get your hands dirty with a simple Java project built with Gradle and go on to build web applications that are run with Jetty or Tomcat. We take a unique approach towards explaining the DSL using the Gradle API, which makes the DSL more accessible and intuitive. All in all, this book is a concise guide to help you decipher the Gradle build files, covering the essential topics that are most useful in real-world projects. With every chapter, you will learn a new topic and be able to readily implement your build files.

Integration testing

Unit testing is one of the key step in software development life cycle. It is one of the first checks to verify the code quality. Most of the basic functionalities can be tested with unit test cases. They are quick and take little time to execute. We discussed both JUnit framework and TestNG framework to unit test the code. The next step in the quality check process is integration testing. As by general definition of unit testing, you divide your code into small units and test them independently, which is good when you are developing your code independently. Once you commit the code and integrate the code with other developers, you need another level of testing, which is known as integration testing. It verifies the communication between different components working together as expected or not. Your test reports might give 100 percent success results in unit testing, but unless and until you perform integration testing, you cannot be assured of the functionality of the...
