Rapid Enterprise Programming: Testable Development with AS7 and Arquillian

A session at JUDCon/JAX London

Tuesday 1st November, 2011

5:20pm to 6:10pm (GMT)

This presentation unveils the missing link in enterprise Java development: simple, portable integration tests. We'll introduce a solution in the first half of the session and demonstrate it in the second.

Unit tests and mocks get you only so far. Eventually you need to verify that your components operate and interact correctly in their intended environment you need integration tests. Yet writing integration tests has meant taking on the barrier of bootstrapping the necessary infrastructure.

Arquillian, a container-oriented testing framework built on TestNG and JUnit, tears down this barrier. It enables you to write portable tests that invoke real components using real enterprise services in a real runtime. In other words, you can write real tests.

And with JBoss AS7, getting your code fired up and running has never been faster. This latest rebirth of the Application Server is the leanest, most efficient we've seen yet.
