Arquillian Drone Extension 2.4.1 Released

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

The Arquillian team is proud to announce the 2.4.1 release of the Arquillian Drone Extension component!

Authenticated GitHub requests

In case of downloading webdrivers from GitHub, you may reach the rate limit for unauthenticated requests (60 per hour). To avoid this, there had been implemented several caching mechanisms, but in some cases (larger CI matrix jobs) it doesn’t have to suffice.

Because of these problems, in this release, we have introduced support for authenticated GitHub requests. In the case of authenticated connections the rate limit is much higher, so it should be almost impossible to reach the limit. To use it you need to specify your GitHub username and secret token in your arquillian.xml file:

<property name="githubUsername">${github.username}</property>
<property name="githubToken">${github.secretToken}</property>

You can imagine that exposing your secrets in the arquillian.xml file is not the best idea. Instead of it, we are suggesting using variables (as you can see in the example) and then specify the secrets on command line (or in your system properties):
mvn test -Dgithub.username=john -Dgithub.secretToken=doe_password

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.
