A RESTFul Web Service

  1. Hi Thomas,
    Have you published source code of your Cucumber posts anywhere ? If so, please pass on that Location.

    • Hi

      I haven’t published the source code anywhere. I think that you will learn more by typing the code yourself or by copying the code from the blog compared with getting the source from a zip or github. That is the reason why this code isn’t available anywhere.

      • Great idea about the “typing the code yourself” strategy. It’s true.

        On another note, I just started reading your blog for the first time. Excellent content, keep it up.

  2. Hi,

    I’ve been working my way thru your Cucumber tutorial series, they have been a great help!
    I asked a question on the “a jsf web application” regarding tomcat zip.
    I found a way to download the binary from maven repo (see bottom for details):

    I still have a couple of questions/issues with my setup:

    1) What maven command should I be running to start tomcat and run the integration tests

    ../rest-ws>mvn integration-test (tomcat is not starting for me, the same thing happened for the zip install)

    T E S T S
    Running se.waymark.rentit.RunCukesIT
    HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found

    If I start tomcat
    ../rest-ws>mvn tomcat:run (see output below)

    then run the Rent.feature via a cucumber-plugin inside eclipse, it works fine

    do you have any suggestions on what I am doing wrong and how I can correct it?

    2) Do you have any ideas on how to get jersey to log requests/responses?

    I did update my com.jayway.restassured dependency to 2.3.2
    and changed the RentACarSupport to use the new API.


    this gives me logging at the client, but I am still wondering if there is some logging
    i can do in Jersey.

    • Hi!

      To start Tomcat and run the integrations tests, do
      mvn integration-test

      I can’t really say that I know how you should enable logging request/response in Jersey. I would probably add log statements in my own methods and be happy to see them being called.
