Testing Java EE 6 Applications with Arquillian
September 18, 2012
This session outlines the tools and techniques for effectively testing Java EE APIs like JSF 2, Servlet 3, CDI, EJB 3.1, JPA 2, JAX-WS and JAX-RS using the highly innovative Arquillian project. Java EE 6 includes a number of new features that enhance testability like generic dependency injection, CDI @Alternative, portable extensions, embedded containers and JSF project stages.
Using these features and tools like JUnit, JSFUnit, HttpUnit, DbUnit, Arquillian and HSQLDB it is possible to perform unit, integration, system and functional testing for Java EE 6 APIs at all layers of the application. In addition to discussing tools and features, the session will also demonstrate testing techniques like designing for testability, mock objects, isolation, test configuration and test data.
