Most projects in CF now involve creating some type of consumable CFC Endpoint or API Service... do you Unit test your API, do you use Integration Tests on your API? How many ways do you test your API? Not all tests are created equal.

We build our CFCs and CF API to be consumed with CF Apps, Mobile Apps, Javascript apps and devices we haven’t even thought about yet. To be smart developers we need to be able to test our CFC endpoints, and the code that uses those endpoints.

We’ll learn how to test your API serverside with Testbox and Clientside with Jasmine. With Testbox and Jasmine both using BDD, your test code can almost be isomorphic.

Attendees should have some exposure to CFCs as endpoints, or CF API creations, and consuming with other languages/devices, in this case, JavaScript.

Attendees will learn

  • How to use Testbox to test your CFCs 2 different ways
  • Different types and ways to test JavaScript
  • Overview of client/server side testing tools
  • Building testing into your workflow
  • You are one of many that are not testing your APIs thoroughly

Online CF Meeting Series on Code Reuse, 3rd Party Libraries and Package Management

Online CF Meeting Series on Code Reuse, 3rd Party Libraries and Package Management

Gavin has presented several webinars on the Online ColdFusion Meetup with Charlie Arehart. This series was inspired by many questions from customers and community members, wanting to learn more about code reuse, when should they write their own modules, when should they use java or coldfusion/cfml packages, and why should people use CommandBox and ForgeBox vs manually handling your 3rd party and shared libraries. This series tries to go back to basics, and explain pros and cons of each approach, hopefully shedding light and demystifying 3rd party libraries, package management, CommandBox endpoint installations, and ForgeBox being the home of all CFML, not a tool for box only products and tools. Check out this blog post for all of these sessions, and links on how to view them on YouTube.
