please ignore this.I messed up with the location of files in my laptop .Sorry for the unnecessary noice :-(
Glad you got it to work..
Again coming back to this.
Whatever I have said earlier is true.The framework is not honouring the arquillian.xml file.I gave a non existing path to JBoss home and server is running in a different location.Still the applications are deployed to the actual server running.
The documentation says:
"You can come a long way with default values, but at some point you may need to customize some of the container settings to fit your environment. We're going to have a look at how this can be done with Arquillian. Arquillian will look for a file named
arquillian.xmlin the root of your classpath. If it exists it will be auto loaded, else default values will be used"
So my question is why is the container not using the values configured in the arquillian.xml file.
The JBoss AS 6 Remote container does not care or support the jbossHome property. See http://docs.jboss.org/arquillian/reference/latest/en-US/html_single/#container.jbossas-remote-6 The Remote container only connects to a running container based on your jndi.properties.
I think your trying to use the JBoss AS 6 Managed container. See http://docs.jboss.org/arquillian/reference/latest/en-US/html_single/#container.jbossas-managed-6
Correct, the JBoss AS 6 remote container assumes that the container is already started, and will connect to it based on the settings in your jndi.properties file. A managed container will start the container process, then communicate with it as a remote container. So you can think of it as remote + launch support.
You also have a problem with your XML namespace in the configuration file. Remove the extra _0 at the end.
