Functional tests, which test the real application, run in milliseconds, thanks to Micronaut's compile-time dependency injection and AOP. This allows Micronaut developers to more easily build robust and stable applications. This course demonstrates how easy it is to test microservice applications using Micronaut's built-in tools.

Through lectures, real-world examples, and hands-on exercises, participants have the opportunity to explore multiple testing practices within Micronaut applications, including API testing, bean replacement, security testing, and more.


To get the most out of this workshop, we recommend participants have beginner to intermediate proficiency with Java and an understanding of how web applications work in general.

Experience with Micronaut is a plus, but no particular expertise with the framework is required.

Intended Audience

This workshop is designed to prepare Micronaut developers to maximize their productivity by providing a thorough introduction to the framework's testing capabilities.
