    How to get transactions in Arquillian test - got "javax.persistence.TransactionRequiredException"

    moritz l Newbie

      I make my first steps with Arquillian. I bootstra pped a JavaEE App with "wildfly-javaee7-webapp-ear-archetype". This includes an entity and an Arquillian test that runs on a @Stateless bean. I added some other entities and want to test them directly - without a bean. I just copied and modified the test's @Deployment (changed the added classes) and tried to just persist one object. But running this tests thows:

       

      "javax.persistence.TransactionRequiredException: JBAS011469: Transaction is required to perform this operation (either use a transaction or extended persistence context)"

       

      I first tried to just begin a transaction but then i get:

       

      "java.lang.IllegalStateException: A JTA EntityManager cannot use getTransaction()"

       

      Then i googled and found Arquillians "transaction-extension" and i added

      <dependency>
      <groupId>org.jboss.arquillian.extension</groupId>
      <artifactId>arquillian-transaction-api</artifactId>
      <version>1.0.1.Final</version>
      <scope>test</scope>
      </dependency>

       

      I annotated my class with @Transactional but this didn't helped (TransactionRequiredException) then i additionally added @Transactional(@Transactional(TransactionMode.COMMIT)) at the test method but this didn't helped neither.

      So how to get transations working with Arquillian.

       

      Thanks in advance
