Announcing: XPath-Replacement Maven Plugin

I'm looking for feedback on my XPath Replacement Maven Plugin. It's barebones right now; please send me any ideas you have on how to make it better, or just let me know if you'r even interested in it. The goal of the plugin is to allow you to do configuration (similar to normal Ant/Maven filtering), but without requiring placeholders so that your source version has a valid value that let's a developer get going straight from source.

I also updated the EasyMock Property Utilities site to include the example posted here on the blog.

EasyMock-PropertyUtils Example

Here's the promised example of how to use my EasyMock-PropertyUtils library. It's a TestNG test class with two test methods. The first, testSayHelloTo() uses the single-property matcher test. The second, testSay() uses the multiple-property matcher test by supplying a Map of property names to property values. If you haven't used EasyMock before, this should also serve as an example of how EasyMock can allow you to unit test in isolation a method that interacts with another class. Check out the EasyMock Documentation for more information.

package test;

import static com.stephenduncanjr.easymock.EasyMockPropertyUtils.propertiesEq;
import static com.stephenduncanjr.easymock.EasyMockPropertyUtils.propertyEq;
import static org.easymock.EasyMock.createMock;
import static org.easymock.EasyMock.replay;
import static org.easymock.EasyMock.verify;

import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map;

import org.testng.annotations.Test;

/**
 * Test the Service class.
 */
public class ServiceTest
{
    /**
     * Test the sayHelloTo method.
     */
    @Test
    public void testSayHelloTo()
    {
        String address = "someone@example.com";
        MessagingService messagingService = createMock(MessagingService.class);
        messagingService.sendMessage(propertyEq(Message.class, "address", address));
        replay(messagingService);

        Service service = new Service();
        service.setMessagingService(messagingService);
        service.sayHelloTo(address);

        verify(messagingService);
    }

    /**
     * Test the say method.
     */
    @Test
    public void testSay()
    {
        String address = "someone@example.com";
        String text = "some text";

        Map<String, Object> properties = new HashMap<String, Object>();
        properties.put("address", address);
        properties.put("message", text);

        MessagingService messagingService = createMock(MessagingService.class);
        messagingService.sendMessage(propertiesEq(Message.class, properties));
        replay(messagingService);

        Service service = new Service();
        service.setMessagingService(messagingService);
        service.say(address, text);

        verify(messagingService);
    }
}

Announcing: EasyMock-PropertyUtils

I've created a new open-source project: EasyMock-PropertyUtils. Basically, this library allows you to use JavaBeans-style property matching for arguments when using EasyMock. I plan to add some end-user documentation and blog some more about both EasyMock and this project soon. This is being done separately from EasyMock because it's use of non-refactoring safe strings doesn't fit the philosophy of EasyMock. The project is quite small, and I have no idea what the interest-level will be, so I'm just hosting it alongside the rest of my personal projects on my Google Code Hosting site. Hopefully there isn't something like this already out there that I missed.
