Integration testing can be difficult and unreliable. Integration tests often require complex setup, access to remote resources, and specific test data, but for all this work integration tests are often flakey. Tests can fail because a remote system is down or over-utilized, test data has become stale, or any other of a number of reasons. Beyond the flakiness of integration tests, integration testing can also suffer from difficulty of reproducing edge case scenarios like system outages, wait times while teams responsible for remote systems complete their work, and the ability to run integration tests locally.

But what if it didn't have to be this way? During this presentation we will define and cover the goals and best practices of integration testing. We will then look at how the tools of TestContainers and Spring Cloud Contract not only make writing integration tests easier, but more portable, reliable, capable of reproducing complex scenarios, and how more value can be derived from tests in the form of documentation and local development aides.
I would do it myself, but it's a bit of a pain on mobile.
