unfiltered-rest-gatling Giter8 Template

A giter8 template which builds a working skeleton sbt project with an unfiltered netty standalone REST server wrapped with the apache-commons daemon library. Also provides a sample fabric deploy script, and is setup with gatling load testing.

Provides a working REST server which will output 'hello, project' when the endpoint is hit, with some example tests.

The generated project is also configured with the sbt-idea, sbt-assembly, sbt-release, and sbt-dependency-graph plugins.


First install g8 by following the readme.

g8 mindcandy/unfiltered-rest-gatling

There are some properties that need to be specified (most can be left default)

name                            => The main projects name
project                         => The name prepended to each of the sub projects
organization                    => Used as the basis for packages
version                         => Version number to use
scala_version                   => Version of scala
unfiltered_version              => Version of unfiltered
dispatch_version                => Version of dispatch
sbt_dependency_graph_version    => Version of sbt-dependency-graph
sbt_assembly_version            => Version of sbt-assembly
verbatim                        => Files to ignore during g8 processing

After g8 has finished:

cd <name>
sbt test
sbt gen-idea
sbt run

Now open your browser and go to http://localhost:8889/'project' and you should get a "Hello, project" message :)

Try some load testing

sbt run
launch new terminal in project directory
sbt "project <project>-server" "test-load:run"
choose option for 'BatchEngine'
view generated results under project/gatling/results

Run from start script

First configure jsvc on your machine by following the instructions here. Then:

cd <name>
sbt assembly
cd bin
chmod +x
./ (remember to stop the server when finished with ../bin/

Generated Project Structure

* <name>
    * <project>-server          // Controls the server
    * <project>-resources       // Containing the unfiltered netty request plan
    * <project>-core            // Business logic
    * bin                       // Start, Stop scripts
    * deploy                    // Sample fabric file
    * gatling
        * results               //Output of gatling results
    * project                   //sbt config

'name' and 'project' are the properties defined during the template execution.
