tutorial-getting stared arquillian.org

eric eric Newbie

I follow every steps of the excellent getting started guide of arquillian :


I find 2 troubleshooting during tis training :

1/ I need to put agin the 3 dependencies about org.mockito, org.hamcrest and net.avh4.util. I checked only the need for mockito dependency.

see page 3/33 § You can remove all the dependency elements ....in the guide

2/about jboss download with maven, the m2e plugin of eclipse 3.7 indigo don't support 'unpack goal' in execution :

maven-dependency-plugin (goals "copy-dependencies", "unpack") is not supported by m2e.pom.xml/arquillian-tutorialline 143Maven Project Build Lifecycle Mapping Problem

Is there anay m2e solution ?

I succeeded in this step by command line :

mvn test -Parquillian-jbossas-managed


it is a very useful guide to start.

Best regards.

    I can confirm the second problem, but not the first one.


    For the second problem I went back to the installed JBoss 7.1.1 but because I didn't like the way you have to set the JBOSS_HOME variable, I searched the documentation and came up with a better solution than the one documented.

    The JBoss AS managed pom.xml should look like this:


    <!-- clip -->





































    <!-- clip -->


    And add a src/test/resources/arquillian.xml with the following content:


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>

    <arquillian xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"


       xsi:schemaLocation="http://jboss.org/schema/arquillian http://jboss.org/schema/arquillian/arquillian_1_0.xsd">


       <container qualifier="jbossas_managed" default="true">

          <protocol type="Servlet 3.0">

             <property name="executionType">MANAGED</property>



             <property name="jbossHome">${user.home}/jboss-as-7.1.1.Final/</property>

             <property name="allowConnectingToRunningServer">true</property>






    In which case I have JBoss AS 7.1.1 installed in my home directory.

    You can add other named container settings to this file.


    What I don't get is why I cant use the JBoss AS 7.1.1 already installed in Eclipse.


    By the way, great getting started guide.

    How you use a container already installed in Eclipse is documented in the second part of the getting started guide:
