Session - Be productive in your automation with the Apache Commons helper libraries
Jan 09 10-10:55AM
We all have to write some bits of code that seem too complicated or that take too much of our time. We wish there was a way to just have that code out of the box, and use it without much hassle. Luckily, there is a collection out there, the Apache Commons project, that provides us helper classes and methods for all kinds of tasks, like:
- working with Strings (extracting substrings, checking whether other strings occur in a given String, splitting them)
- working with files and folders (creating, copying, moving or deleting them)
- generating random Strings of specified lengths and containing specified or random characters
- checking the OS the tests are running on
- and so many more
Join my talk, as i will present some of the most useful helper classes included in the Apache Commons libraries,together with some of their frequent uses.
