Just wanted to let folks know that I was able to get this running with this link: https://github.com/it-crowd/arquillian-suite-extension. Thanks to the folks for creating this. You need to add this as an extension to Arquillian and then you can run the tests as a suite ( We are using JUnit 4 ) where you have one deployable which gets deployed once and undeployed once.
This brings up another question. We were using the "JBoss Microcontainer" for running our tests in the JBoss 4 environment. It's my understanding the upgrade path from the microcontainer is to use Arquillian. After getting the tests running with Arquillian, the tests run in much the same way as the did in the microcontainer. I just can't believe Arquillian has not supported running suites of tests until recently. Or at least running in a way where you deploy once, run all the tests, and then undelploy. Even with hundreds of tests, let alone thousands I could see it taking days to do one test run. Is there another way to do this that I'm missing?
I am running an application that has 2 JUNit Tests, but each time the server gets deployed and undeployed for each test. Could you let me know how to use the arquillian-suite-extension as described above by you? I am using an apache-tomcat-container.
