"Wiremock" for RSocket

Engineering | Dave Syer | June 02, 2021 | ...

If you have an application that connects to an RSocket server at runtime, how do you test it? We need a way for a test to start a server and tell us where it is listening, and then we need to be able to register request and response examples (a.k.a. "contracts"). That’s what this project provides - it’s like Wiremock but for RSocket.

Getting Started

The easiest way to use the project is as a JUnit (Jupiter) extension, e.g:

class SocketsApplicationTests {

With this extension installed the Spring Boot tests will run with an RSocket server listening on a port given by test.rsocket.server.port, so the test can connect directly to it, or (more likely) the code that it is testing will connect to it. You might need to tell it where to connect via the @SpringBootTest annotation, e.g. if the application is looking for a property at runtime called rsocket.port

This Week in Spring - May 25th, 2021

Engineering | Josh Long | May 24, 2021 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! How're you doing? I'm still fresh off my little vacation last week, feeling fantastic. I've spent the last several days working with Spring Boot and Spring Native and I have to tell you, they're epic.

It's gotten to the point where I sometimes spend time working on enabling Spring Native integrations for other projects - it really makes some third party abstractions come alive! It's hard to know what the right comparison is. There's not much you can do in this life that results in such an instantaneous, night-and-day difference in performance and memory profile with so few (user-visibile) changes. Imagine snapping your fingers and having your luxury hypercar (Spring Boot in this metaphor) transform into an equally capable, and very
