Give Scala a try? Test your Java code with Scala

A session at Jfokus 2011

  • Andreas Kaltenbach

Wednesday 16th February, 2011

2:00pm to 2:50pm (CET)

With release of version 2.8 back in summer 2010, Scala skyrocketed to one of the most promising alternative JVM languages on the planet. Have you also heard a lot of good news about Scala and ever since wondered how you could get Scala into your everyday's business? Maybe it's a good time to consider writing your tests in Scala. This session explains, how the purely object-oriented and functional nature of Scala enables you to write better and more concise tests in less time. By applying Scala's neat concepts like traits, implicits and first-class functions, we'll demonstrate how you are able to circumnavigate typical TDD pitfalls and anti patterns. With ScalaTest and ScalaCheck, you have great frameworks at hand which provide Scala developers with convenient APIs and give you yet another boost in productivity and test quality. So, why not killing two birds with one stone: make your first steps towards a Scala pro and save yourself valuable coding time!
