3.15 Testing Refactoring

Juppies 2 by Dr Heinz M. Kabutz

Let's run the game, which in IntelliJ IDEA now also runs the tests before starting up.

Don't be alarmed by how long it takes to do the build and run the tests. In the real world you will have servers that do nothing but build our systems all day long. Whenever we push one of our commits into our remote repository, our servers will wake up, grab our code and try build it. Hopefully our commits won't break anything and all our tests will pass. Careful, some companies have a policy that anyone who breaks a build has to bring carrot cake for the whole team the next day!

The game runs and we see the original scrambling, just like we were expecting to see.
