Shrinkwrap Archive type for portlets

We can now use PortletArchive instead of WebArchive when we’re creating micro deployments for testing a portlet. In it includes methods for setting the content of portlet.xml without needing to specify the path, in a similar manner that WebArchive provides setWebXML() methods.

Helpers for creating portlet.xml

PortletArchive also adds some nice helpers for creating GenericPortlet or GenericFacesPortlet portlet definitions within portlet.xml. A GenericPortlet can be added to portlet.xml by:


And adding a portlet for JSF is:

We look forward to hearing your feedback about this release in the community forums!

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.
