Arquillian Old

Testing CDI beans

Here's an example of an JUnit Arquillian test that validates the GreetingManager EJB session bean again, but this time it's injected into the test class using the @Inject annotation. You could also make GreenManager a basic managed bean and inject it with the same annotation. The test also verifies that the CDI BeanManager instance is available and gets injected. Notice that to inject beans with CDI, you have to add a beans.xml file to the test archive.

      Assert.assertEquals("Hello " + userName, greetingManager.greet(userName));
