Clean Code Development Part 1: A Question of Personality and Teamwork

What rules should a "good programmer" actually follow in order to build high-quality software? I used interviews with our developers to evaluate what clean code development (CCD) can do and what hurdles are encountered when integrating this approach into the everyday life in software development.

Java Annotation Processors - Creating Configurations

In the second section, we would like to focus on generating configuration files for a simple plugin library. To do this, we will write an annotation processor that exports all classes which are annotated with an `@Extension` annotation to an XML file. In addition to the full name of the class, the Javadoc for the class is also written to the XML file. Additionally, we will write a class that allows us to read these files from the classpath.

Coding Continuous Delivery—Helpful Tools for the Jenkins Pipeline

After the first two parts of this series discuss the basics and the performance of Jenkins Pipelines, this article describes useful tools and methods: Shared libraries allow for reuse for different jobs and unit testing of the Pipeline code. In addition, the use of containers with Docker offers advantages when used in Jenkins Pipelines.

post icon The Smart Wiki that Lives with the Code

The Smart Wiki that Lives with the Code

In software development it is crucial to share information; no matter what kind of information. Whether it is about technical or functions details or about requirements; good knowledge management helps you to focus on your work and to prevent mistakes. Probably you know this first hand: it is easy to start documenting something, but the difficult part is to keep it consistent, in a central location and up to date. Once a project has been running for some time you often spend quite some time to search folders for some specific document or you create new documents, because you didn’t know there was already a similar one.

Coding Continuous Delivery—Performance optimization for the Jenkins Pipeline

If you’ve ever used a conventional CI tool to set up a Continuous Delivery pipeline by chaining individual jobs without any direct pipeline support, then you’ll know just how complicated this can get. In this article series, we’ll explain how a pipeline can be defined as code in a central location using the Jenkins pipeline plugin. In the first part of this article series, we’ll take a look at the basics and share some practical tips for getting started.

post icon First Steps Towards Test Management

February 28, 2017 / by Daniel Huchthausen / In Methods

First Steps Towards Test Management

If you develop software it is inevitable to test the code that was programmed and there are several different ways to do that. For instance you can automate your tests or execute them manually. No matter how you carry out your tests you have to ensure that you test the right thing and that you test everything that is relevant. That is where test cases and scenarios come into play.
