Examining the Source Code

The server-side source code is exactly as posted in Chapter 3. What we haven’t already gone over is the client code for this example. The client code is structured as a JUnit class. JUnit is an open source Java library for defining unit tests. Maven automatically knows how to find JUnit-enabled test code and run it with the build. It scans the classes within the src/test/java directory, looking for classes that have methods annotated with @org.junit.Test. This example has only one: Let’s go over the code for it:



import org.junit.Assert;
import org.junit.Test;


public class CustomerResourceTest {
   public void testCustomerResource() throws Exception  {

 System.out.println("*** Create a new Customer ***"); // Create a new customer String newCustomer = "<customer>" + "<first-name>Bill</first-name>" + "<last-name>Burke</last-name>" + "<street>256 Clarendon Street</street>" + "<city>Boston</city>" + "<state>MA</state>" + "<zip>02115</zip>" + "<country>USA</country>" + "</customer>"; URL postUrl = new URL("http://localhost:9095/customers"); HttpURLConnection ...
