Arquillian: The Extendable Enterprise Test Platform

A session at Devoxx 2011

Monday 14th November, 2011

4:45pm to 5:15pm (WET)

Arquillian is the missing link in Java EE development. Developers have long had to fend for themselves in the testing stage, burdened with bootstrapping the infrastructure on which the test depends. That's time lost, and it places a high barrier to entry on integration testing. Arquillian tears down that barrier.

Arquillian is a container-oriented test framework. It picks up where unit tests leave off, targeting the integration of application code inside a real runtime environment. Just as Java EE 5 simplified the server programming model by providing declarative services for POJOs, Arquillian equips tests with container lifecycle management and enrichment.

This talk will go behind the scenes of Arquillian, lift up the curtain and unveil the Extendable Enterprise Test Platform:

  • Give your test classes new capabilities
  • Manipulate the packaging process
  • Hide testing framework integration complexity
  • Integrate into the test runners lifecycle
