I’ll be leading a hands on lab “Starting Out with JUnit 5” at JavaOne. This is a BYOL (bring your own laptop) lab.
In order to follow the lab, you’ll need either a recent Eclipse or IntelliJ. Or you can use the command line and your favorite editor if you usually code that way. If you aren’t very familiar with IntelliJ, I recommend using Eclipse. Both lab instructors use Eclipse primarily so we will be able to help you more that with IntelliJ.
(NetBeans does not yet support JUnit 5 which is why it isn’t an option)
Option 1: Eclipse
Option 2: IntelliJ
- Download and install IntelliJ 2017.2.1 or later. (2016.2 or later will probably work, but I haven’t tested). JUnit 5 is included.
Option 3: Maven and your choice of Java editor
- Install Maven if you don’t already have it.
- Make sure you are using Java 8. (This lab was not tested with Java 9).
- Your favorite Java editor is presumably already installed :).
Optional – Git
- One of the steps will be to pull code from git. If you have a git command line (or git bash), this is a one line operation. If not, you’ll be able to download a zip file from github so this isn’t a hard requirement.
