Java Weather App in Need of Tests

I am getting 500 and IndexOutOfBoundsException, any help?

I modified Weather API that is not in the notes to be:

Weather API

weather.api.name = darksky.net API weather.api.key = pasted my key here weather.api.host = api.darksky.net

bootRun started OK

At the search box entered zip code and got status 500

message Request processing failed; nested exception is java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException: Index: 0, Size: 0

description The server encountered an internal error that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

Can anyone provide the clue?

So there have been changes since the initial release.

  1. As you've mentioned in the api.properties darksky api changes to be made are as follows:
weather.api.name = darksky API
weather.api.key = YOUR_DARKSKY_API_HERE
weather.api.host = api.darksky.net

2.Now the reason you're getting that error is this: Calling google APIs.

You're now required to enable billing on Geocoding API, unfortunately, to make this spring unit testing lessons practical. There's a limit of 1 request to this API without billing enabled. Google offers $300 free credit when you sign up at the time of writing.

Teamtreehouse, could you please maybe find other viable options without us having to enter debit/credit card details just so we could follow along these lessons?
