Dropwizard, MongoDB and Gradle Experimenting

via Dropwizard, MongoDB and Gradle Experimenting | Learning and Improving as a Craftsman Developer.

I created a small project using Dropwizard, MongoDB and Gradle.
It actually started as an experimenting Guava cache as buffer for sending counters to MongoDB (or any other DB).
I wanted to try Gradle with MongoDB plugin as well.
Next, I wanted to create some kind of interface to check this framework and I decided to try out DropWizard.
And this is how this project was created.

This post is not a tutorial of using any of the chosen technologies.
It is a small showcase, which I did as an experimentation.
I guess there are some flaws and maybe I am not using all “best practices”.
However, I do believe that the project, with the help of this post, can be a good starting point for the different technologies I used.
I also tried to show some design choices, which help achieving SRP, decoupling, cohesion etc.

I decided to begin the post with the use-case description and how I implemented it.
After that, I will explain what I did with Gradle, MongoDB (and embedded) and Dropwizard.

Before I begin, here’s the source code:
