CDK Infrastructure Testing - Part 2b - Unit, Integration and Application Test for Serverless Lambda Functions
After describing the context of the test pyramid for Infrastructure as Code in part 1, and the Web Application in Part 2a - let`s apply that to some Lambda function.
The newly introduced ECS Anywhere feature lets us use our existing resources as Compute Power in Amazon ECS. Let’s talk about some basics and see how ECS Anywhere can be set up in Terraform!
There are many components under the Glue umbrella that can fit together into a cohesive big picture. In this introduction to Glue I’m explaining my version of this big picture.

Anything that can be created within a Lambda function, can be deployed as a Custom Resource, with its lifecycle being managed by CDK/CloudFormation. This blog posts explains how to set this up using the example of an user in a SimpleAD.
