Nullables Livestream #9: Database Dreams

In this weekly livestream series, I pair up with Ted M. Young, aka jitterted, to look at Nullables and A-Frame Architecture as an alternative to Mocks, Spies, and Hexagonal Architecture. Each episode combines a healthy dose of architecture and design discussion with hands-on coding.

Databases! With our initial implementation of nullables complete, it’s time to add persistence. We start by reviewing Ted’s Spring Data JPA spike, then begin creating a GameDatabase infrastructure wrapper from scratch. The goal is to write low-level tests that give us total control over how the wrapper works. Most of our time is spent fighting with Spring Data, but by the end, we’ve got it figured out.
