Okay, I got a barebones JBoss running inside a JUnit test and I set up a NoTxConnectionManager programmatically, and am requesting a connection from the connectionfactory.
I noticed the tests you mentioned in the CVS tree, and maybe someone has already done this, but I'd like to create a test harness to do some testing of a JCA adapter, sort of "in-container", yet still black-box. That way, I could test my adapter and make sure all the connection counts are right, etc.
Would this be of help to you? I know you guys already have a testing framework and I don't want to step on that, but I am sort of interested it trying to treat JBoss as a "lightweight container." We can't let Spring, etc. get all the good press can we? ;)
Anyways, I'm sort of rambling. Take care,
I'm currently working on that very thing, the roadmap is:
1) Document what we have.
2) Release it as a standalone project
3) Make improvements
The improvements include removing the jmx requirement so the component bus can
be pluggable a implementation, e.g. an aop/ioc container.
But this is not the correct forum for this.
