    Portrush is beautiful, I love it up there. There's a great fish and chip restaurant in the beach at portstewart strand which I'm looking forward to visiting when we're allowed.

    When we moved from England to Northern Ireland we hired a removals guy from Ahoghill, which is up near Ballymena. I barely understood a word he said but he moved our stuff so it didn't much matter. I just hoped I nodded and laughed at the appropriate times during conversation.

    There are some wild accents round these parts right enough. That's up there with the 'best' of them though.

    Ah yes it's just the key bindings you can set to be like eclipse, not the shortcut auto complete thing. What you're looking for is 'sout'

    I think there is an eclipse setting for key bindings in IntelliJ.

    More concerning though is that your workplace is dictating what tools you must use. If you're most productive with eclipse then use eclipse, I say.

    It can be a feature of cloud computing but is not a definition of it.

    I deliberately didn't elaborate in my previous reply because there are so many services and am not going to categorise them all for you. For starters though, EC2 is not an 'elastic' service.

    You're talking about quite a few different concepts here. Initially you asked about a method in which you can automatically run a bunch of test cases, for which Junit is a good choice, and now you're talking about in memory databases, mocking, Spring Boot, and JPA.

    My best recommendation at this point is this: Do one thing at a time.

    I am fully aware that I'm raising the dead here with this topic, but I was having a moment forgetting how to convert ASCII integer values into characters and stumbled across this post from mid 2004. Ernest's post reminded me and I was immediately unblocked from my task. Thanks 16 years younger Ernest.

    Just goes to show the value in these forums legacy.

    Again, junit is your friend here. Combine it with the spring mock MVC stuff I referred to in one of your other topics and you're good to go
