Justify JEE


[This page intended for Software Engineers; a less technical perspective may be viewed as JUST.]

PED Central is the home for the open-source “Justify” suite for JUnit testing. Justify modules support “real” (functionally equivalent) services running within the JUnit JVM for optimal performance minimizing the need for mock testing.

Regardless of your JUnit experience, you’ll appreciate the 100% fluent rule-based API for configuration. In addition, powerful custom assertions compliment specific Java technologies such as:

  • Justify Core
  • CDI (v1.x)
  • JPA (v2.x)
  • REST (v2.x)

Justify is coded using the PED Unified Pattern Language to maximize expressiveness (readability). This sample JUnit test method exposes the extended testing life-cycle available when using Justify:

package com.gtcgroup.justify;

 * Test Class
public class ExtendedLifeCycleTest {

 public JstRuleChain ruleChain = JstRuleChain.outerRule(true)

 public static void afterClass() {
     System.out.println("\t09 - @AfterClass");

 public static void beforeClass() {
    System.out.println("\n\t01 - @BeforeClass");

 public void after() 
    System.out.println("\t06 - @After");

 public void before() 
    System.out.println("\n\t04 - @Before");

 public void displayTestingLifeCycle() {
    System.out.println("\t05 - Test Method");

The console listing for the above test class follows. In support of test method isolation, most Justify rules execute an afterTM() method to return the configuration to its prior state.

01 - @BeforeClass

02 - FirstConfigureRule.beforeTM()
03 - SecondConfigeRule.beforeTM()

* Welcome to the JUnit Strategy for Testing [JUST] *

*** Test Method Begin: 
04 - @Before
05 - Test Method
06 - @After
07 - SecondConfigurationRule.afterTM()
08 - FirstConfigurationRule.afterTM()

*** Test Method End [Succeeded .653 ms]:
Active Rule(s): [FirstConfigurationRule] [SecondConfigurationRule]

09 - @AfterClass

If required, a light-weight JstManagedBeanRunner class provides support for a JUnit test containing a CDI Interceptor: 
Enough chatter, let’s get coding!
