  • spring-social and integration testing of connect/signin?

    Hi All,

    This is an open ended query about alternatives for integration testing of spring-social providers and apps. Spring Social includes spring-social-test which addresses testing of provider implementations and is very helpful for unit testing.

    Do people have examples of integration testing that includes the Connect and Provider Signin controller flows? I've seen examples of using HtmlUnit to manage the connect and signin interactions but this was for non Spring Social applications. Use of external browser automation (WebDriver etc) is the next step up but you get the testing time and complexity hit.

    My question is: Are there are aspects of Spring testing in general (spring-test, spring-test-mvc, etc...) and Spring-Social specifically that can/should be leveraged for integration testing? Any gotchas or lessons learned much appreciated.

    Best regards,
