Do you find your test code hard to maintain?  Have your tests become a monolith? Have you wondered why there is so much setup required to test results from a rest controller?

If you have ever asked yourself those questions, then slicing up your application tests is a strategy that might work for you. I have been leveraging spring boot application test slices since its initial release in spring boot 1.4.  My team has gone on to break up complicated tests in our architecture to make them more focused, easier to maintain, and easier to follow. 

In this talk, I will share strategies to break up your tests into smaller segments through the use of the DataTestJpa and WebMvTest annotations.


Since entering the industry in 2007, Bryan Kelly has implemented, designed, and automated interop solutions across Cerner's Network IP Organization.  He is an avid user and advocate of open source frameworks and is actively using several to contemporize the cloud strategy for Cerner's Network IP Organization.  Recent projects include uplifting Cerner Direct Web Inbox, Cerner Direct Referrals, and portions of Cerner Direct to a microservices architecture based upon Spring Boot and Spring Cloud.  In addition to his internal contributions, Bryan actively participates in the open source community as a technical reviewer and consistent contributor to Spring Boot, Spring Cloud and Netflix OSS.  Currently, Bryan is establishing an open source, cloud native ecosystem centered around leveraging Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) to continuously deliver apps and services to both Cerner's on-prem and public cloud infrastructures of choice.
