Objective of the presentation:
ntegration testing is always a difficult area. You need to make sure that all system are connected, data is correctly initialised for each run and test runs do not interfere with each other.
You can do integration testing today, but sometimes these tests are flaky for various reasons or they cannot cover all the cases that you would like to test.
With the Testcontainers project, this issue can be a thing of the past. It allows you to create reliable integration tests covering a wide range of scenarios like database usages, microservices interaction and GUI testing. One of the important factors for the success of this framework is the usage of Docker containers to create a reproducible environment for the test.
This presentation shows you the basics of Testcontainers and within demos gives you examples of testing database integration, microservices integration and testing the UI with Selenium.
