    Support for JBoss ESB?

    Mikael Jørgensen Newbie



      Saw the presentation yesterday at JavaOne, and would like to give Arquillian a try.


      We have an application that gets deployed on the JBoss ESB - and it would be great if we could try out using Arquillian for making some functional tests for this.


      Is this supported by the current scope of Arquillian?

      ... and if not, do you have any plans to extend the supported containers so the JBoss ESB gets covered?

          JBoss ESB is a repackaged/addon to JBoss AS and we support JBoss AS. So you should be able to connect and deploy to it.


          On the other hand, we have currently no special ESB support build in.


          What you should be able to do is:


          - Deploy any EE related artifacts(cdi, ejb) and communicate with the ESB from inside the container


          - Deploy ESB archives and communicate with them in AS_CLIENT mode using the connectors they expose, e.g. jms


          We don't have support for bundling arquillian as part of a ESB deployment(we only have HTTP support as of now, and a .esb archive does not cover as a webarchive to my knowlegde. I might be wrong)  so we can't do incontainer testing directly inside the .esb module.


          It's been a while since I've used the ESB, so I'm not 100% up to date on how it works and what it supports. We definitely would want to support it fully, but no work has been put into investigating the best approach as of yet.


          If you have any thought, any requests on how you would like ESB testing to work, I'm all ears.
