Event Description

Hello OrlandoJUG,


This month, March, we have a special very talented developer for our monthly meeting. Curtis McMillen will be our speaker.


Why mock when Arquillian rocks?!


Unit testing is a waste of time. Yep, I said it. If your application runs inside a container, like say a Java EE application, how do you unit test code which depends on container provided services such as security, transaction management, and injection? Well you simply mock the transaction manager, and the security layer, and the injected dependencies, and whatever else your code depends on and then, finally, you write your unit test. Simple right? Stop making a mockery of testing and start writing real tests, for real code, running inside a real container. Come see how Arquillian makes this a snap and will make you cooler, smarter, and even better looking.

Sorry you can't make it, James but we'll mention Liferay and potential to migrate Codetown there. Also, there's a possibility we're gonna video the talk.

Hey Mike - dang, this one sounds good!  I will be travelling back from EclipseCon, so I'll have to miss - hopefully can make the next one.  I'd choose Maven if I were attending :)

I vote for this:  Unit Testing with Arquillian (& maybe Graphene/Selenium) for the same reason Greg mentioned.

Second place is CDI.

I vote for Arquillian. Mainly 'cause it's the one I know least about.

HowStuffWorks "How Cloud Computing Works"

In a cloud computing system, there's a significant workload shift. Local computers no longer have to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to running applications. The network of computers that make up the cloud handles them instead. Hardware and software demands on the user's side decrease. The only thing the user's computer needs to be able to run is the cloud computing system's interface software, which can be as simple as a Web browser, and the cloud's network takes care of the rest...

What cloud computing really means | Cloud Computing - InfoWorld

Cloud computing is all the rage. "It's become the phrase du jour," says Gartner senior analyst Ben Pring, echoing many of his peers. The problem is that (as with Web 2.0) everyone seems to have a different definition...

Cloud computing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility (like the electricity grid) over a network (typically the Internet).
