Setting Up Angular 2 MockBackend

Todd Leininger AngularJS, JavaScript, Technology Snapshot, Tutorial 2 Comments

Todd was working on a client project developing one of the company’s first Angular 2 applications when he found that he needed access to the REST services before they were ready. He needed a good way to mock them up, so he set up a mock service for an Angular 2 application using MockBackend.

In this article Todd shows a step-by-step example of setting up a mock of RESTful web service APIs for an Angular 2 application using Angular’s MockBackend. With this method, he could then use that mock to work on the application before the real APIs were ready.



Quick Start: End-to-End Testing With Protractor

Todd Horn AngularJS, JavaScript, Technology Snapshot, Testing, Tutorial Leave a Comment

As AngularJS applications become more complex, manual testing becomes unreliable and repetitive. Unit Testing is a great start for testing the code, but eventually End-to-End testing is needed for better coverage.

A great tool to use for this is Protractor, an end-to-end test framework for AngularJS applications. In this blog, we’ll briefly introduce the benefits of Protractor and give you the steps needed to get started with the tool.



Getting Started With JHipster, Part 3

Matt McCandless AngularJS, Java, JavaScript, Spring, Tutorial 1 Comment

Welcome back to this JHipster tutorial series! In part one we covered creating a monolithic application. In part two, we walked through creating a microservice application (which was a bit more complicated).

For those of you out there working to get things going with JHipster, there are some setup things and “gotchas” that I’d like to highlight. So this little blog is more of a helper for those of you who have decided to try JHipster out and play around with it. That’s what we’ll be discussing in this blog post with the hope that I can help you minimize the getting-up-to-speed curve…



Getting Started With JHipster, Part 2

In part two of this series, we create a microservice architecture using JHipster’s available options for doing so. There is quite a bit more work to do with this approach as compared with the monolithic approach. But, in the end, it pays off. You will see the benefits and flexibility in decoupling our different layers of our architecture. Each layer will not be dependent upon another to run. Let’s get started…

A Test-Driven Development Introduction to Angular 2

Matthew Brown AngularJS, JavaScript, Testing, Tutorial 4 Comments

AngularJS is a popular framework used for building single-page applications. One great benefit of using Angular is that it is easy to incorporate automated testing. I have been using Angular on various projects for a few years now, so naturally I was curious to learn what’s new in Angular 2. In this article, I will be walking through the process …
