Arquillian Core 1.0.0.CR6 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.CR6 release of the Arquillian Core component!

Some of the highlights in this release

Container Control modes – Containers can now be configured to have multiple different control modes using the new mode attribute in arquillian.xml

<container qualifier="X" mode="suite|class|manual" />
  • suite (default)
    As you know it from before, container will be started and stopped as part of the test suite.
  • class
    The container will be started and stopped for each TestClass
  • manual
    Control the lifecycle by injecting @ArquillianResource ContainerController and calling cc.start|stop|kill from within your TestMethods. In manual mode, the container will be automatically stopped in @AfterClass.
@ArquillianResource ContainerController controller;

public void shouldBeAbleTo() throws Exception
  // do stuff

  // do stuff

  controller.start("qualifier", new Config("some-new-container-option", "value"));
  // do stuff

Ordering of JUnit TestMethods – As pr the JVM specification, the order of Methods in a Class are not tied to the order they are written in the source file. You can now annotated your TestMethods with @InSequence(n) to run them in a defined order.

Support for TestNG >= 6.3

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.
