    Arquillian REST extension

    Albin Joseph Newbie



      I was trying to test a REST service using the rest extention. The tutorial I followed was http://arquillian.org/blog/2013/10/28/arquillian-extension-rest-1-0-0-Alpha1 . But when I run the test case I am getting an exception. The stack trace of that exception is given below.


      Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/jboss/resteasy/core/ResourceMethod

          Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.jboss.resteasy.core.ResourceMethod from [Module \"deployment.UnitTest.war:main\" from Service Module Loader]"}}

      My pom.xml is given here. http://pastebin.com/xSEyZ60i


      Is there a dependency that I am missing?

          How does your test code look like?

            Thank you for the reply.


            My code is available at http://pastebin.com/bkPbc62Y


            Please note that I tested without @Before and @BeforeClass method at first, however @ArquillianResteasyResource object was null and my test was throwing an NPE. So I added the @Before and @BeforeClass and after that it started giving the ClassNotFoundException.

              Both @Before and @BeforeClass are invoked in the server for your test, therefore you will need to deploy required libraries as well. On the other hand there is no reason to deploy testable archive in this case, as your tests are black-box, so you want to exercise your REST endpoints from the client perspective. Can you try to set @Deployment(testable=false) and share the results? I think if you do it with this approach you won't need @Before and @BeforeClass as resource should be created properly.


              Hope that helps.

                Thank you for the reply.


                I have removed the @Before and @BeforeClass methods from my test class. Now I have only create method which is annotated with @Deployment(testable=false) and testLoginUser method which is annotated with @Test and @RunAsClient . Now when I run there are no exceptions at the startup. But now I am getting a NullPointerException because

                @ArquillianResteasyResource UserResource userResource1

                is null.


                The attachment RestTest.zip file contains my complete project along with the test case and source service.

                  Hi there,


                  as i understood your code userResource is also a server side(white-box) resource and hence will not be available in arquillian client mode .


                  You should deploy userResource as you already did but test it from the client, something like:



                  public void testLogin(@ArquillianResource URL url) {

                              //resteasy client api

                              ClientRequest request = new ClientRequest(url+"rest/user/login/");

                              Userdata userData = new UserData("login","pass");

                              ClientResponse<String> response;

                              Gson gson = new Gson();

                              response = request.body(MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON,gson.toJson(userData)).post(String.class);

                              Assert.assertTrue(response.getStatus()== Response.Status.OK.getStatusCode());         

                              LoginResponse loginResponse = gson.fromJson(response.getEntity(String.class), LoginResponse.class);



                  the way i implemented the test your login would work with json strings:




                      public  Response login(String json) {

                           Gson gson = new Gson();

                          UserData data = gson.fromJson(json,UserData.class))

                          LoginResponse response = new LoginResponse();

                          if (data.getUsername().equals(data.getPassword())) {

                              double value = Math.random() * 100000;


                              response.setLogonId((long) value);

                          } else {





                          return Response.ok().entity(response).build();;

                    Thank you Rafael Pestano for your reply. It works. However I think it does not use the Arquillian REST extension. Can we get our unit testing working in the same way mentioned in this post http://arquillian.org/blog/2013/10/28/arquillian-extension-rest-1-0-0-Alpha1 ?

                      @albinjoseph how is your current code different from the one in blog?

                          Thank you for your reply.


                          @Bernard Labno The code is not different. I suspect, it is something to do with the pom.xml.

                            Could anyone please share their working pom.xml file for WildFly? I strongly believe it is an issue with my pom.xml file. If it is not an issue with pom.xml file, it could be a bug.

                              @Bernard Labno Thank you very much for your reply. With that pom.xml file, I am able to get the object and there is no NPE anymore. Thanks a lot.


                              However I am facing another issue now. The login method accept only post and seems like when I call userResource.login it is a GET method. Now my test is failing with the following exception.


                              javax.ws.rs.NotAllowedException: HTTP 405 Method Not Allowed

                              How can I post to this method?
