    Where is shrinkwrap ?

    Anthony Patricio Master

      Hi Guys,

      Sorry for the stupid question but I've updated some Arquillian dependencies and noticed I was using a quite old Shrinkwrap version.

      I updated it but some of my deployment builds are not working anymore.

      Looking for docs, I hit



      Is this the good page?


      I'm used to simply use

      WebArchive test = ShrinkWrap

      .create(MavenImporter.class, "test.war")



      That is not working anymore.

      Deep api refactoring, fair enough but without eays to find documentation, it's quite impossible to survive.

          Hi Anthony,


          ShrinkWrap is still where it used to be. The problem you're facing is missing MavenImporter, which is distributed as a part of ShrinkWrap Maven Resolver (aka ShrinkRes) project.


          The MavenImporter was (temporarily) dropped from ShrinkRes. The last version where it was present was 2.0.0-alpha-1. MavenImporter has to undergo a significant surgery, so it would be usable from IDE. You can track the issue https://issues.jboss.org/browse/SHRINKRES-61 for the progress.


          Currently, I can recommend you either to stick with 2.0.0-alpha-1 or, dependening on your use case, use ShrinkWrap to build the archive and ShrinkRes to add the dependencies. You can find up-to-date manual here:




          Btw, your feedback on using MavenImporter is really valuable to us. You have the change to help us to form its new API by simply commenting you use cases/concerns in that jira.
