BASE December 2011 Meeting

ScalaTest 2.0 Show and Tell — Bill Venners will give a tour of new features including better sbt, Maven, and IDE integration, markup and an HTML reporter, a dashboard, and odds and ends.

Dick Wall will talk about a popular technique for enterprise development: dependency injection, and take a look at the options available for Scala, including his own lightweight and simple solution, SubCut. He will demonstrate the ideas behind SubCut and show where it might be useful.

There will be pizza, sponsored by Typesafe. Additional rotating sponsor companies wanted for future meetings; please contact the organizers.

On the waiting list? Come anyway! Usually there are plenty of no-shows. At worst, you might have to sit on the floor or stand.

Drinks/food/conversation afterwards at Meadhall, corner of Broadway & Ames.

Location: D463 Room (Star)

To get to the room, make sure to enter the Stata Center at 32 Vassar Street opposite the sign for 43 Vassar Street. Take the elevator (under a sign saying "Alexander W Dreyfoos Building" to the fourth floor (if you find yourself instead in the Gates Building part of the Stata Center you will need to walk to the other end of the building to the Dreyfoos elevators). Turn left out of the elevator and then right, through a set of double doors, and straight ahead past a pool table towards the R&D common with a red-orange carpet. Turn right shortly before hitting the red-orange carpet and you will see the STAR seminar room[masked] straight ahead.

    It was nice to see what's coming up in the next ScalaTest release. And the introduction to SubCut was just awesome!

    I'm kind of down on DI frameworks right now for Scala. In one of our integration testing apps, we were able to replace our Spring java config with implicit parameters and 'implicit lazy val's, which provide compile time safety. We even got rid of the terrible spring string qualifiers in favor of tagged types. http://etorreborre.blogspot.com/2011/11/practical-uses-for-unboxed-tagged-types.html

    I'm here with Dick. Dick said that he won't cover Spring but will cover Guice, but the two are similar in some respects.

    I'm curious if Dick Wall will cover Spring DI with Scala. I know people hate Spring mostly because of XML. I was able to do pretty sexy DI using Scala and Spring java config: http://static.springsource.org/spring/docs/3.0.x/spring-framework-reference/html/beans.html#beans-java . Best of all it was compatible with existing Java.
