Arquillian Eclipse

Arquillian Eclipse

Arquillian Eclipse is a new JBoss Tools component that makes using Arquillian easier.

See Arquillian Eclipse.

Add/Remove Arquillian Support

The Arquillian support can be added/removed by right-clicking the project and selecting Configure>Add/Remove Arquillian support.

The project has to be a maven project. The Add Arquillian Support action adds the Arquillian nature to the project as well as the arquillian artifacts (bom, dependencies, required plugins, profiles ...) to the project's pom.xml. The Remove Arquillian Support removes the Arquillian nature, but doesn't change the project's pom.xml.

Run As Arquillian launch configuration

The Run As Arquillian launch configuration includes the following features:

  • is activated only if there is the org.jboss.arquillian.junit.Arquillian class
  • runs only Arquillian JUnit tests
  • checks if there is exactly one implementation of the org.jboss.arquillian.container.spi.client.container.DeployableContainer interface
  • includes the Arquillian tab that enables the user to check/change the Arquillian configuration properties, select maven profiles, review/start/stop WTP servers. The Arquillian configuration properties are added using declarations from the arquillian.xml, and the default values when instantiating the corresponding container configuration.

Arquillian Validator

The Arquillian Validator finds the following issues:

  • classes that are used in a test, but aren't included in the deployment
  • tests without any deployment method and/or any test method
  • resources that can't be found

Arquillian issues can be ignored, marked as a warning or as an error.
It is possible to add quick fixes (haven't been implemented yet) for some or all Arquillian issues.
