After working on enough web applications, you start to wonder if this kind of integration testing is really worth all the hassle. All that time spent setting up containers, configuring Cargo and Maven, attaching remote debuggers, it all seems to suck up your time! I worked on one RESTful web application where I actually tried to get away without integration testing and only did any sort of integration testing directly through the REST framework. This of course proved to be rather ineffective and I quickly learned from my mistakes!
While working on yet another RESTful web application , it occurred to me that this whole process could be a lot easier if I could just run my functional tests in the same way as I run Spring itegration tests. From there, Jitr was born.
