In the Arquillian Team, we believe that Open Source isn't really about software; it's about the exchange of ideas.  Across cultures, corporations, locales we come together each armed with a slightly different perspective.  Slightly different strengths.  Lately we've been grateful to field pull requests for code, documentation translations, new ideas, community roadmap planning meetings, and criticisms alike.

And just as Open Source isn't restricted to programming, Arquillian isn't bound to Java EE.  Sure, its roots have been in the testability of app servers, but the Platform has grown to reach the UI.  Persistence.  Stress-testing. 

 

Because the mission of Arquillian is to get you testing inside of your real environment.  No mocks.  And to us, testing is development.

 

This year, we want to take the Platform deeper into the Java ecosystem.  We want to see exactly how easy we can make the testable development cycle for more technologies: JavaFX.  Android.  Eclipse development.  Other VM languages.  Whatever you bring to the table.

 

So in true Open fashion, we'd like to extend an invitation to all developers and speakers within the Java landscape to join us in a submission for the JavaOne 2012 Community Keynote this October in San Francisco.

The focus of the proposed talk will be testable development of as many Java corners as we can represent, and the Arquillian team will assist with integration as we can.  We'll have a few months to arrange examples and show the in-IDE testing of components that were previously unwieldy or cumbersome.

Of course, we can make no guarantees that our proposed talk will pass the selection committee, but we feel that the Open nature of this submission speaks to the true Community spirit of the Keynote.

 

So join us in our run for the Big Stage; leave comments in the Thread below and we'll kick off a group to together outline the proposal and submit it for consideration by the due date, 9 April.

The community has spoken.

Testing is no longer a second-class citizen, and we're on the course towards adapting the application server for use in JavaSE environments without imposing the traditional standalone runtime. Get on the cutting edge and preview the prototypes lined up for JBoss Embedded and related features.

See why JBoss strives to be Good Embed.

We've got many component models from which to choose for our business logic, but the real power comes when we can mix 'n match.

As an exercise I put JBossMC through its paces to showcase how its agnostic framework is ideally suited as a base for building a runtime.

Enjoy; I had fun with this one.

It's Not 2002

Posted by Andrew Rubinger Dec 4, 2008
Since 2002:
  • The Red Sox have won the World Series. Twice.
  • The Vatican got a new Pope.
  • We've had 2 February 29ths
  • Paris went through 6 or 7 BFFs
...yet our friends at SpringSource continue to push the notion that Enterprise Java is complex and unpopular.

I disagree.

Along with JEE Compliance comes a host of architectural restructuring intended to speed EJB3 development. Now that the dust has settled, I've taken a few moments to outline some of the changes we've made over the past months, and explain why you should care.

Admittedly, this entry is not as humorous as some of my past articles, but there's nothing funny about being awesome.

It's unfortunate that integration testing of an application must take place within a known, reproducible server configuration, because I sure hate writing the scripts that set this up.

But I've gotta for EJB3, and here's hoping you can reap the rewards.

JBoss is the MILF of Enterprise Java. We'll keep you intrigued and entertained well into our years, but you'll also be proud to call us the mother of your children.

Here's why.

Take a Cue From Queues

Posted by Andrew Rubinger Feb 22, 2008
Riding on the coattails of Carlo de Wolf's JBoss World Presentation, I'd like to bring to light yet another Enterprise Concern that EJB makes No Concern of Yours.

Get in line.

As an avid advocate of Community Involvement, I'll be making a concerted effort to reach out with editorials and feedback requests via Exit Condition. Each entry will be linked from JBoss Blogs to ensure maximum self-promotion.

My writings are not a one-way conversation; differences in opinion are welcome such that I might correct you.
