I guess what you need is to override standard Arquillian test runner with your own. You can look at this project https://github.com/cukespace/cukespace?source=c, to be more concrete, at this class
Please know this is very low level approach. In Arquillian, there is the concept of extensions. If you want to know how to write extensions (it is quite simple after getting the basics), lets any existing extension at github be your guide.
Reference can be very helpful as well, there is lot of information what is going on under the hood: Reference Guide - Arquillian - Project Documentation Editor
Last but not least, thank you very much for being interested in Arquillian project as such.
Thanks Stefan for your reply. I will try to get hold of extensions provided by Arquillian.
