In which situations should we use Cypress or Robot Framework? Are both good choices to get tenured manual testers into the practice of automating their work for tests of APIs and functional tests of web applications? Cypress looks great for functional testing of web applications and Robot Framework looks great for everything else.

Background: We have over a thousand functional test cases for our web applications being executed manually by a QA team. Our front ends interface with APIs written in Java with various frameworks over the years (e.g. Spring, Spring Boot, Java EE). I think our testers could learn enough of the basic coding in JS, Java, and Python required to automate most of those cases.

Hi, I'm working on dockerizing a heavy Java EE application where the process of installation requires a complex process maintained by a Gradle project we've developed to install, configure and customize specific jar files to generate a runnable server application at the end for the user. I'm new to Docker. As I said, the problem is that we have got a long process to install the app. The first alternative pop into my head is to put the installer Gradle project in the docker image and manage stateful data using the writable layer (in this case, I need to add Gradle too and the writable layer will be too heavy). Any advice! Thank you

Java EE Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Java EE?
Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. There are lots of applications and websites that will not work unless you have Java installed, and more are created every day. Java is fast, secure, and reliable. From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!
A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.
Spring Boot
Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can "just run". We take an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries so you can get started with minimum fuss. Most Spring Boot applications need very little Spring configuration.
Java 8
It is a revolutionary release of the world’s no 1 development platform. It includes a huge upgrade to the Java programming model and a coordinated evolution of the JVM, Java language, and libraries. Java 8 includes features for productivity, ease of use, improved polyglot programming, security and improved performance.
Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.
