Building Arquillian WAS Container


  • Define WAS7_HOME, WAS8_HOME, and WAS85_HOME to point to your respective WAS installation (e.g. /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer)
  • Check out arquillian-container-was from github

$ git clone git://


Build steps

When all the above prerequisites are met you can build support for all WAS Containers with


$ cd arquillian-container-was

$ mvn clean install

If you only want to build the container support for a specific version of WAS you can change to the respective subdirectory and execute the maven build from there. (e.g. arquillian-container-was/was-remote-7, was-remote-8, was-embedded-8)
