The Conference on Continuous Integration & Testing is taking place this year in Denver (April 4 & 5), Melbourne (June 27 & 28) and Amsterdam (October 3 & 4).
With its second installment yesterday evening, Paris JUG is confirmed as the de facto meeting place for Java enthusiasts in Paris.
I like FitLibrary and I like Fitnesse. However, there is really one thing to keep in mind when migrating from plain old ActionFixtures under Fitnesse to DoFixtures.
On projects that I see, most are using a Continuous Integration tool. Many, however, still do not use those tools to their fullest. Here is what I typically set up on projects that I have control on.
The Maven Surefire page explains that -DskipTests and -Dmaven.test.skip=true can both be used to avoid running tests. If you use an old-ish version of Surefire (pre-2.4) or even if you use the latest version (2.4.2 as of February 21th, 2008), … Continue reading

We now have more than 80 registrants for CITCON Brussels, more than 2 weeks before the 19th. This year, I have volunteered to help organize registrations, so I get to see every single registration request. It’s interesting: sometimes, you don’t … Continue reading
