Arquillian Container Chameleon 1.0.0.Beta3 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.Beta3 release of the Arquillian Container Chameleon component!

What’s new in this release

Support for WildFly 11

With this release we bring support for latest version of WildFly container. We would like to take this opportunity to highlight how easy it is to get support for a custom container if it’s not defined by Chameleon itself.

Prior to this release, if you needed support for WildFly 11, there were just two things you had to do in order to use it with Chameleon:

  • create a containers.yml file (like the snippet below)
  • point Chameleon to load it, instead of the default one
- name: WildFly
  versionExpression: 11.*
    - type: remote
      coordinates: org.wildfly.arquillian:wildfly-arquillian-container-remote:2.1.0.Final
    - type: managed
      coordinates: org.wildfly.arquillian:wildfly-arquillian-container-managed:2.1.0.Final
        jbossHome: ${dist}
    - type: embedded
      coordinates: org.wildfly.arquillian:wildfly-arquillian-container-embedded:2.1.0.Final
         jbossHome: ${dist}
         modulePath: ${dist}/modules
  defaultType: managed
    coordinates: org.wildfly:wildfly-dist:zip:${version}
    - org.jboss.arquillian.test:*
    - org.jboss.arquillian.testenricher:*
    - org.jboss.arquillian.container:*
    - org.jboss.arquillian.core:*
    - org.jboss.arquillian.config:*
    - org.jboss.arquillian.protocol:*
    - org.jboss.shrinkwrap.api:*
    - org.jboss.shrinkwrap:*
    - org.jboss.shrinkwrap.descriptors:*
    - org.jboss.shrinkwrap.resolver:*
    - "*:wildfly-arquillian-testenricher-msc"

and then run the build using command such as:

mvn clean install -Darq.container.chameleon.configuration.chameleonContainerConfigurationFile=${PWD}/containers.yml -Darq.container.chameleon.configuration.chameleonTarget=wildfly:11.0.0.Final:managed

This way you can also easily contribute support for your favorite container and become Arquillian Hero forever!

GlassFish containers

We brought support for latest GlassFish 5 server, you can use it as follows:

  • glassfish:5.0:managed
  • glassfish:5.0:remote

In addition we depracated support for GlassFish 4.0 in favor of GlassFish 4.1.

What is Arquillian Container Chameleon?

The Chameleon container can quickly adapt to your needs of testing against several containers (JBoss AS / JBoss EAP / WildFly / GlassFish) or even switching between different modes (Managed / Remote / Embedded) without requiring additional dependency configuration.
