I took the idea for subsystem testing which I introduced in the archetype, and have improved upon it with in the AS 7 code base itself where we are slowly starting to use this for our own use. The code lives here: https://github.com/jbossas/jboss-as/tree/7.0.1.Final/subsystem-test and is available in version 7.0.1 of AS 7 (not in 7.0.0).
I will release a 7.0.1 version of the artifact later this week, using the new test harness and will update the documentation a bit.
Excellent. Thats what I was looking for!
The new version of the subsystem archetype using the org.jboss.as:jboss-as-subsystem-test framework is now pushed to our maven repo and I updated the docs to reflect this, to use pass in 7.0.1.Final as mentioned at https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/AS7/Create+the+skeleton+project, i.e.
mvn archetype:generate \
I documented the difference between the 7.0.0 and 7.0.1 versions of the artifact at https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/AS7/Extending+JBoss+AS+7#ExtendingJBossAS7-Testingtheparsers
