Arquillian Core 1.1.4.Final Released

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

The Arquillian team is proud to announce the 1.1.4.Final release of the Arquillian Core component!

JUnit was starting to feel lonely, so we cut 1.1.4.Final to show it some love.

What’s fixed in 1.1.4.Final?


When running JUnit test cases in a Remote container the result of Assume was reported incorrectly as Passed when evaluated on the client side. This is now fixed and the client side should show Skipped as with any other JUnit test.

public void should() throws Exception {

JUnit supports the notion of setting a timeout on a Test method to allow JUnit to kill the execution and report it as Failed if it takes too long. Support for this was added in Arquillian Core 1.0.2.Final, but the implementation had some unforeseen consequences and was removed in 1.1.3.Final. We’re now happy to report this has been reintroduced in 1.1.4.Final. ..the support for timeout that is, not the unforeseen consequence… ;)

@Test(timeout = 1000)
public void should() throws Exception {
// potential long execution
Upgraded to ShrinkWrap 1.2.2

Arquillian-BOM now expose ShrinkWrap 1.2.2 by default.

ShrinkWrap 1.2.2 is a minor bug fix release. See the release notes for more information.

Upgraded to ShrinkWrap Resolver 2.1.0

Arquillian-BOM now expose ShrinkWrap Resolver 2.1.0 by default.

The new ShrinkWrap Resolver version adds support for:

  • Maven > 3.1.0
  • Adding repositories programmatically

You can read more about the release in the release notes.

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.
