I'm currently in the process of unit testing my application. I try to test the most dangerous pitfalls thoroughly. Using Seam and its annotations, a few new potential error types arise.
I'm therefore thinking about how to test for things like
I'm not sure if these examples are really relevant to everyone (some might be very individually but others could also apply in general); however, the overall idea would be to catch those things as early as possible. Now if I remember correctly, there is some sort of the mechanism active in the Seam startup, but I'm not sure what it exactly checks for.
Can anybody think of more examples that can be 'statically' checked?
Would it be a good idea to use the (existing) startup validation in a unit test?
I'm waiting for your responses!
Thanks for reading :-)
A bit of a plug, but IntelliJ IDEA 8 has a number of Seam specific inspections (e.g. check @In class and name match component), plus more general inspections including EJB, JPA etc
