this is due to the fact that deployment to managed processes is more complex and it generally provides little added value for unit testing. WAS for Developers and RAD don't support deployment to managed processes as well and applications under test shouldn't behave differently whether they're deployed to a managed process or not.
I'm currently not aware of anyone working on this and there is no JIRA enhancement request for it currently.
Thank you for your answer. Really appreciate it.
Well, I work at a large company which only has IBM Webpshere 8.5 managed servers.
It's not possible for the company to create other servers than managed servers.
So the company and i are very interested in having support to deploy to either a node-agent or managed server.
Also because Websphere 8.5 Embedded server really isn't usable (lacking too much features) .
What is the best way to request such support? Or it's beter to build
the feature by my self?
Thanks in advance,
If you really need this and the stand-alone appserver support we currently have is not enough for you, you're already on the right track. Maybe someone else might find this thread and has interest to contribute. I'd also ask you to file an enhancement request in JIRA at Arquillian: WebSphere Containers - JBoss Issue Tracker for this so everyone is aware you're interested in it and others can also vote for this enhancement.
Of course we'll be happy about any pull requests you can provide to add this feature! You can find our repository on GitHub at arquillian/arquillian-container-was · GitHub
