Tests with Spring Boot MockMVC

Spring and Spring Boot provide several ways to test our applications/services. Recently I made a post and video about Testing approaches that might be interesting for you. Previously I also made a post and video about TestRestTemplate and mocks. For this post, I want to focus a bit on the MockMVC capability. MockMVC has a FakeDispatcher servlet(It will feel pretty real) simulating the MVC stack, however, there are no real network connections being made in practice. So MockMVC provides a lightweight way to test controllers as fast as possible. For this post, we will see a simple POC I wrote with a video going to set up a Spring Boot application and also test some scenarios with the MockMVC feature. So Let's Get Started!
