When Java EE Is Too Fast--You Need Snail

snail is apache-licensed library ...which artificially slows down your JAX-RS 2.X endpoints.

Snail makes it easy to test your bulkheads and circuit breaker configurations.




  1. Set property with: snail-slowdown-in-ms=[DELAY IN MS].
  2. Override the system property with an equally-named header.

Java EE is too fast -- so we need snail :-)

See you at Java EE Workshops at Munich Airport, Terminal 2 and particularly at Java EE 7 Microservices. Also checkout airhacks.io -- workshops on demand.


Also a terrific way of flushing out flaky frontend tests, that should be waiting but aren't, if you have a lot of JavaScript that talks to a Java EE backend
