Thanks Jeanne & Maneesh for taking the time in answering my question -

@Maneesh, based on what I've read I think I'm OK doing QA, as I feel it might broad my scope as a developer and in the long run make me a better professional.

@Jeanne Thanks for the clarification, and regarding my current job, I love what I do, it's just that I don't feel comfortable with the company.

I just realized I made something very dumb - my apologies... To answer your question is that I would like to be a developer, but I've been applying for a Java dev position and of course because of my experience (or because I miss the technical test) they decline my application. It's actually very simple math, I just need to practice more, but the thing is that with this company that it's offering me a position as a QA Automation when I applied for a Java dev, I considered it as beign rejected for the position because I didn't met the expectations.

We have a dedicated forum for discussing job related scenarios. I will move your topic over there for you.

There could be many reasons for this.
The correct question to ask is what do YOU want? Do you want to be a developer or a tester/QA?

Hello,

Hope everyone is doing fine! I've been working for about 6 months as a Java Dev. Recently I applied for a Jr Java position at another company and I think everything went well, because I passed some interviews and tests (Monday I'll have my final interview) but when they explained me a bit about the process, they basically described the position for a QA automation, I've been doing some research and it actually doesn't look bad at all. Now my real question is, if I applied for the Jr Java position but they offered me the automation position (where they were looking for people with 1+ years of experience) should I consider that as good thing? Or that I wasn't good enough for the Jr Dev position?

Hello,

Recently, I started a new job (4 months now) and I still have a lot to learn from Spring. One of the issues we're having is that when we bring objects from the DB and map them into (Repository -> Service -> Controller) a JSON, it brings a lot of unnecessary data - For example (small example):

We have an Employee class which has a Department object and it brings the following:

Class details:

If I want to build a "custom" mapper, which is the best practice? Or how can I implement something that allows me to create a JSON that brings me something like this:

I've been doing some research and I stumbled across the following recommendations:

Jackson JSON Views
JSON Filter and JSON Views This one taken from another forum.

Also I've been thinking about using a generic object that contains a HashMap so I can include, on the Controller, the data that I want or need for an specific screen.

I really appreciate any help - hope the question is clear enough.

Hello Jennifer & Katherie! Welcome to CodeRanch!
Hello Oscar,

The .gitignore file, as you might know, may vary from your project requirements as well from the IDE you are using.

A while ago I found this helpful repository on github that contains "templates" on the files you can ignore depending on the language you're working, as well as for any IDE (i.e: IntelliJ, Eclipse, etc)

Hope this might be of help.

Something else to take into consideration is the format of your code, because if you're able to read the code doesn't mean that other people will see it as you do. Robert C. Martin on his book Clean Code, provides details on coding standards and good programming techniques. If you have the chance get a copy of that book, go ahead and give it a try.

Now - as Knute mentioned the line of code he highlighted contains the errors you're getting from the compiler.

Happy coding!

I think that the IDE is a matter of preference - personally I prefer IntelliJ. As mentioned by Bear - Git over Subversion. The rest are still ok

I would love to get a copy - recently I started getting more into details of Spring and notice how powerful can it be.
