You’re a Java developer for a large company that sells stock photography. You’re responsible for the service that ingests images, and it’s been having problems, despite successful unit testing.

Working in IntelliJ IDEA and the Spring framework, you’ll build an integration test that replicates an otherwise unreproducible problem. You’ll also mock an external service to address and prevent problems related to external dependencies. Finally, you’ll use integration testing to connect and run two services together to address problems that only occur when they’re combined. When you’ve completed this series, you’ll have an integration testing strategy that goes well beyond the capabilities of unit tests for ensuring the stability of your code.

These projects are designed for learning purposes and are not complete, production-ready applications or solutions.
