Spring is a framework that allows you to create enterprise-level applications. The problem arose where it took many configurations to get an initial application up. This is where Spring Boot came along.
“Spring Boot allows you to abstract (hide) these configurations. So you can get a preconfigured template application.” — From part 1 of this series
Here in this article, you’ll be shown how to create a Rest API in Spring Boot. This API will be a CRUD (create, read, update, delete) application that connects to a SQL database — in this case, a MariaDB database.
If you’re new to Spring or you just need a refresher in Spring and its concepts, the previous article explains the basics. …
When browsing job descriptions, especially for jobs in my country, one of the most common back-end frameworks requested by employers is Spring Boot. By this time, I was already accustomed to frameworks like Flask and Express when I decided to learn this seemingly popular framework. I can say based on my experience that the journey was not fun. …
You might have seen this one before: the syntax which often gets ignored because it doesn’t seem to hinder the execution of your code. It may not seem necessary, but that’s only if you’re working with a single Python file.
Let’s start out by deconstructing the statement from left to right. We already know what an if statement is; however, the most important part of the statement are the two things being compared.
Let’s start with
__name__ .This is used to denote the name of the file that is currently being run, but there is a trick to this. …
In this article we’re going to demonstrate how to generate dummy data and input for a MySQL database. Majority of the times we need to create a database to test some software that we’ve built. To do this, we can use Structured Query Language (SQL) to create a mock database system. However, problems may arise if we want to test hundreds or even thousands of records. There is definitely no way we could write that many insert statements into our SQL scripts to meeting our testing deadlines for product deployment, that would be too tedious and time consuming.
To help with this problem, our trusty friend Python comes to assist ! …
That can save you a lot of time !
Using python over the years, I came across some useful features that would have saved me a lot of time if I had known about them a little bit earlier. These little python gems can help keep your code more DRY( Do Not Repeat Yourself) and clean.
By the time you are finished with this article, I can guarantee you that you will be using some of these features in your very own python programs.
Note: You can use any IDE or text editor that you are familiar with ( python’s default IDE is known as “IDLE” and that can also be used). For these features, I will be demonstrating using Visual Studio Code (VS Code) with a python extension. …
As developers or programmers, call yourself anyone. As long as you write code there is often one thing that gets overlooked. Testing. Testing is that part of development where you’re suppose to rigorously test your applications to ensure that they meet the required functionalities.
Let’s start of with why we even do testing in the first place:
