Testable Enterprise Development with Arquillian

A session at JavaZone 2011

Thursday 8th September, 2011

2:20pm to 3:20pm (CET)

In this session, we'll address the missing link in Enterprise Java development: simple, easy integration testing.

Unit tests and mock objects will only take you so far; the only answer which truly ensures that all components are playing nicely is a comprehensive integration suite. Unfortunately, writing integration tests has historically involved manual setup of a heavy, cumbersome test harness. That's time lost, but it doesn't have to be anymore.

Here we'll introduce Arquillian, a powerful container-oriented testing framework layered atop TestNG and JUnit. Arquillian manages your runtime, abstracting out deployment and allowing you to focus on real test logic. We'll cover:

  • Transparent container lifecycle management
  • Declarative deployments
  • Test Enrichment (Dependency injection intotests)
  • In-container test execution

Attend this talk to learn how the simplified component model of Java EE can be applied to testable development
