Arquillian OpenShift Container 1.0.0.Alpha2 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.Alpha2 release of the Arquillian OpenShift Container component!

Some of the highlights in this release

Application deployment timeout can be set up by user:

<arquillian xmlns:xsi=""

  <container qualifier="openshift">
      <property name="deploymentTimeoutInSeconds">150</property>


Improved archive scanning now honors application.xml and jboss-web.xml for figuring out
deployment context root.

Support for deployment of ZipImport’ed archives.

Arquillian OpenShift Express Container no longer requires JBoss Maven Repository.

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.
