      I tried running the test cases with the seam distribution. This is the exception I am getting :

        • 1. Re: Seam Test with the Seam Distribution Seam 2.0.0 GA not working
          Jeff Caulfield Newbie

          I ran into this same problem while trying to execute unit tests on a SEAM project that was in the default Eclipse workspace folder, under Documents and Settings on my Windows machine. After much searching, I finally came across the following.


          Error running TestNG with Seam-gen created app


          All I had to do was to move my workspace directory such that the path to the project had no spaces and then my unit tests began to work. Similarly, I had put my SEAM directory under the Program Files folder, which is why ant test failed for all of the examples as well. This seems to be a limitation of embedded JBoss.


          I ran into two other road blocks before this one. The first is the related to changes in the JDK between 1.5 and 1.6. I resolved this issue by adding a <jvmarg> element to the <testng> action for the test target in my build script, as described here and here. The second problem was to do with an incompatibility between embedded JBoss and the version of JAXB (Java XML Binding) that I happened to have installed. One suggestion involved using an endorsed folder for the new JAXB API, but the better solution seemed to be to upgrade to JDK 1.6 update 4 or later.


          Anyway, I hope this helps anyone else out there who is struggling this this same issue. Now that I have it running, I have to say I am very impressed with what you can do with TestNG in SEAM. Unit testing ROCKS!
