User Review of Mike

April 9, 2010

One of our users, Ben Wilcock, has written on his blog about his experiences getting started with Mike.

His project is a bleeding edge demonstration of how to implement RESTful services using HyperJaxb. It is built using Maven2 and the build showcases a full end-to-end functional test and deployment of a JEE6 web application.

His Maven build takes advantage of some the new features we have recently added to Mike, in particular the freedom to spawn or fork additional processes (such as application containers or bash scripts) during a build, all within a secure, sand-boxed environment.

As Ben himself says,

“Considering my project’s build includes starting and stopping an embedded Glassfish container and running SoapUI integration tests – I was amazed at just how easy it actually was!”.

Be sure to check out his informative series of entries about his experiences with both Mike and other aspects of his innovative project.
