Arquillian Abstract: In this session, Andrew Rubinger will address the missing link in enterprise Java development: simple, easy integration testing.

Unit tests and mock objects will only take you so far; the only answer that truly ensures that all components are playing nicely is a comprehensive integration suite. Unfortunately, writing integration tests has historically involved manual setup of a heavy, cumbersome test harness. That’s time lost, but it doesn’t have to be anymore.

In this session, Andrew will introduce Arquillian, a powerful container-oriented testing framework layered atop TestNG and JUnit. Arquillian manages your runtime, abstracting out deployment and allowing you to focus on real test logic.

We’ll cover:

  • Transparent container lifecycle management
  • Declarative deployments
  • Test enrichment (dependency injection into tests)
  • In-container test execution

Attend this talk to learn how the simplified component model of Java EE can be applied to testable development.

Time: 6:00, June 21st, 2011
