This should be the most complete, best DOF download ever. The unit tests work great. You'll need to download the lastest H2 to run them. Cheers. Justin
By October 29, a new version will be ready! Don't hesitate to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in the DOF.
The new release will include great documentation and simple, yet illustrative examples. I'm speaking tomorrow at SD Best Practices in Boston on this topic, so it will be ready. Check out http://justingordon.org
This release is greatly improved. See the release notes, and please, please send me your comments: email@example.com. Also, please consider signing up for the google group "Dependent Object Framework" and the dof-announce mailing list.
I've just added support for using Java and files.
If you're interested in the DOF, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can let you know when the new version is ready. Or else please check back in a couple days (like 9/26/2008)
Greetings! I just released a major update to the DOF which is support for scratch objects. This allows two types of DB objects used in testing:
1. Reference objects -- loaded once for best performance of tests
2. Scratch objects -- objects that tests can modify and that other tests won't see.
Stay tuned news on an upcoming in-depth article...
Please see http://www.justingordon.org/2008/03/database-dependent-junit-tests-and.html
for a nice description of what the framework is and how to use it.
I created a Google group for discussion: http://groups.google.com/group/dependent-object-framework.
I've also made significant enhancements to the latest release. Please see the release notes and consider signing up for the discussion group if you're interested in the DOF.
I've posted an article junit.org: http://www.junit.org/node/308. This is a good description of the why and how behind the Dependent Object Framework.
