The mission of the Arquillian project is to provide a simple test harness that developers can use to produce a broad range of integration tests for their Java applications most likely enterprise applications. We wanted to correct those shortcomings with Arquillian. Starting from the Gradle build defined in the previous section, we first define a configuration for the test runtime dependencies.


The community has gravitated towards Maven as the preferred build tool for projects that use Arquillian. Five star book for a five star framework. Testing business components, in particular, can be very challenging.

A reader should be familiar with some automation strategies and techniques such as JUnit and should have some exposure to techniques such as mocking. The class is annotated with RunWith Arquillian.

To get that visual, we need to run the tests in the IDE. Via this injection point we can guidee multiple internal objects.


To really be sure the component works in a pure environment, we need to use a standalone container. Regardless of whether you plan to use Maven as your project build, we recommend that you take your first steps with Arquillian this way so as to get to your first green bar with the least amount of distraction.

That means adding beans.

Arquillian Testing Guide

This book will help you to develop richer test cases which can be run automatically while performing rigorous testing of the software. Click OK and accept the project changes. Clearly there is a need for a simple solution, and Arquillian fills that void.

Add the Arquillian container integration to the test classpath e. The archive includes the test case along with the specified classes, resources and libraries. The reason is two-fold: Containers can be further classified by their capabilities. Arquillian then captures the test results and transports them back to the test runner for reporting.

Since Arquillian needs to perform JNDI lookups to get references to the components under test, we need to include a jndi. Now all we need to do is inject the Greeter instance into a field directly above the test method and replace the unimplemented test method with one that asserts the behavior of the bean. But you might implement your own Protocol. Often, a vanilla unit test isn’t sufficient for validating such a component’s behavior.

Even with the application separated into more layers than your favorite Mexican dip, to validate the correctness of a component, you have to observe it carrying out its work— in situ. Simply right click on the TemperatureConverter. A container adapter controls and communicates with a container e. That means you get dependency and resource injection into the test, you can access EJBs, you can load a persistence unit, you can get a handle to a database connection, etc.


The output has four types of information – you can distinguish them by their prefix:. Successful test report in NetBeans. We believe that integration testing should be no more complex than writing a basic unit test.

Instead, they interact with or provide services for the greater system. The profile is activated either using either a commandline flag -P or a preference in the IDE. Gradle Gradle is a build tool that allows you to create declarative, maintainable, concise and highly-performing builds. For the sake of example, let’s assume we are going to use the default datasource provided by the container and that the tables will be created automatically when the persistence unit starts up.
