Arquillian Droidium 1.0.0.Alpha5 Released

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

The Arquillian team is proud to announce the 1.0.0.Alpha5 release of the Arquillian Droidium component!

Arquillian Droidium 1.0.0.Alpha5 is packed with bugfixes, updates and it has integrated with various other Arquillian extensions.

Extension integration

Droidium now profits from the Arquillian Spacelift extension that provide a robust way of dealing with execution of external binaries and applications. In Droidium, we use it to handle the execution of all Android-related binaries.

We also have created a Arquillian Droidium Screenshooter extension which builds on top of the Arquillian Reporter extension. If you have Arquillian Reporter extension on class path, you can generate reports for your (mobile) test runs very easily and export them in a lot of different formats like XML, JSON, HTML or even Asciidoctor.

It is recommended to use Selendroid server of version 0.9.0 and Android SDK 22.6.2.

Next stop, Beta

Arquillian Droidium 1.0.0.Alpha5 is the last Alpha release before reaching Beta stage. Starting with Beta1, you can expect experimental support for Arquillian Drone 2.0.0.Alpha1, removal of web plugin which depends on the deprecated Selenium Android server APK, that will be replaced by the Selendroid’s Android driver. It will also be updated to use Selenium 2.40 from current 2.39.

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.
