Arquillian Core 1.0.2.Final Released

Since we wrote this post we didn't laze around. Check our latest announcement.

The Arquillian team is proud to announce the 1.0.2.Final release of the Arquillian Core component!

Another little maintenance release in the Arquillian 1.0 series.

The @Deployment can now be defined on private and protected methods. The same package and protected support is applicable to the SPI level for service and observer implementations.

static JavaArchive createDeployment() {

Using environment variables in arquillian.xml is now possible via the property expression

<container qualifier="example">
   <property name="jbossHome">${ENV.JBOSS_HOME}</property>

Ever run into this exception? “UnsupportedOperationException: Multiple WebArchives found in X.ear. Can not determine which to enrich.”
The exception happens when the Servlet Protocol in Arquillian attempts to enrich an EnterpriseArchive for in-container testing, but multiple WebArchives were found in the Deployment, and it can’t determine which you want to test. With the help of Robert Panzer this is now supported. You can give a Protocol a hint to which Archive is under test by using the new Testable.archiveToTest(Archive) method.

static EnterpriseArchive create() {
   return ShrinkWrap.create(EnterpriseArchive.class)

What is Arquillian?

Arquillian is open source software that empowers you to test JVM-based applications more effectively. Created to defend the software galaxy from bugs, Arquillian brings your test to the runtime so you can focus on testing your application's behavior rather than managing the runtime. Using Arquillian, you can develop a comprehensive suite of tests from the convenience of your IDE and run them in any IDE, build tool or continuous integration environment.
