    Running the examples against AS7

    Thomas Diesler Master

      The build currently produces

       

      $ mvn -Dtarget.container=jboss700 test
      
      check-config:
           [echo] 
           [echo] Please specify JBoss AS 7 root directory in property 'jboss.home'
           [echo] For example:
           [echo]              -Djboss.home=/clones/jbosgi-as/build/target
           [echo]   
      

       

      This should not be needed.

       

      Instead the SPI or ARQ should use the ServiceContainer MBean to fire up the Framework service.

       

      All tests, must then examine the framework and install their respective dependencies. In SPI we have the fabulous notion of Capability, which provisions the framework with a capability and takes it off again when the test is done.

          Here is the correct list of bundles that should be deployed in AS

           

          arquillian-osgi-bundle.jar.deployed
          jboss-osgi-blueprint.jar.deployed
          jboss-osgi-common-core.jar.deployed
          jboss-osgi-http.jar.deployed
          jboss-osgi-jaxb.jar.deployed
          jboss-osgi-jmx.jar.deployed
          jboss-osgi-reflect.jar.deployed
          jboss-osgi-webapp.jar.deployed
          jboss-osgi-webconsole.jar.deployed
          jboss-osgi-xerces.jar.deployed
          org.apache.felix.configadmin.jar.deployed
          org.apache.felix.eventadmin.jar.deployed
          org.apache.felix.metatype.jar.deployed

            Thomas, you are correct, deploying them using JMX would be more elegant.

             

            Currently the test infrastructure uses another API to deploy the bundles - by copying them into the deployment folder before starting AS. Does it really matter that much which deployment API is used to deploy the test bundles?

             

            That property is already set by the hudson jbosgi-remote test jobs as it was used previously for the AS 6 integration.

              I suppose that script can go when we have installer integration. There was no need for hacky scipt like this for any of the target containers we supported in the past.

                Thomas,

                 

                As I mentioned to you before, the script is a temporary thing that does exactly what the installer would do. It is precisely the same logic, except executed from an ant script instead of an izpack configuration. I don't really see why you would call that 'hacky'. It's rather an approach that would give us results quicker as I don't know yet how to configure izpack. Changing the izpack configuration is on my todo list.

                  I call this "hacky" because it prevents me from runing tests individually and multiple times

                   

                  mvn -Dtarget.container=jboss700 -Dtest=Foo test

                   

                  Can I help on IzPack? It should be trivial to do because all but one releases used to have AS integration.

                    You can run the tests multiple times individually by specifying the -Djboss.home property in addition to the ones you already have in your command line.

                    Sure, go ahead!
