Selenium waits

WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver(); //implicit wait driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(3, TimeUnit.SECONDS); //explicit wait - wait given a timeout time WebDriverWait webDriverWait = new WebDriverWait(driver, MAX_WAIT_TIME); webDriverWait.until(ExpectedConditions.visibilityOfElementLocated(By.xpath(GRID_TITLE_XPATH))); //fluent wait - wait given a timeout time and polling interval public WebElement fluentWait(final By locator) { Wait wait = new FluentWait(driver) .withTimeout(30, TimeUnit.SECONDS) .pollingEvery(2, TimeUnit.SECONDS) .ignoring(org.openqa.selenium.NoSuchElementException.class); //Can also use functions from ExpectedConditions class such as ExpectedConditions.visibilityOfElementLocated(By locator) WebElement element = wait.until(new Function() { public WebElement apply(WebDriver driver) { return driver.findElement(locator); } }); return element; }; WebElement e = fluen…

CoderByte Array Addition I

I started playing around with coderbyte a place to test your programming skills. I was stumped for a bit on this question Array Addition I:

"Using the JavaScript language, have the function ArrayAdditionI(arr) take the array of numbers stored in arr and return the string true if any combination of numbers in the array can be added up to equal the largest number in the array, otherwise return the string false. For example: if arrcontains [4, 6, 23, 10, 1, 3] the output should return true because 4 + 6 + 10 + 3 = 23. The array will not be empty, will not contain all the same elements, and may contain negative numbers. 

Use the Parameter Testing feature in the box below to test your code with different arguments."

But eventually hammered it out. I saw some people using multiple for loops as well as nested loops. I took a different approach and just did math with the exception of one for loop.

Here is my code example with assertions if you anyone is interested.

Libgdx: Create Item Database using JSON files

This blog post describes how to create an Item database using libgdx JSON parser and storing it in a Collections object to retrieve from.

0.) Create the JSON fileSave this as "weaponDb.json". This JSON object is used to create a list of Items in which we can grab items from.
[ { "id": 1, "name": "Dumb Basic Sword", }, { "id": 2, "name": "Bad Ass Flaming Sword", }, { "id": 3, "name": "Sword of Kick Ass", } ]1.) Create the testA simple JUnit test to test our database
import com.mygdx.items.Item; import com.mygdx.items.ItemLoader; import org.junit.Test; import; import java.util.ArrayList; /*Simple Test Case*/ public class TestDb { @Test public void testDb() throws IOException { ItemLoader itemLoader = new ItemLoader(); ArrayList database = itemLoader.load("weaponDb.json&…

Team Logo created with Inkscape

Here's a logo I created with Inkscape. It's a bird. Feel free to download it and study it.

Sample Game Art

Experiment using same shapes to create characters. Just scale to create small/big characters.
