Arquillian Cube: Write Tests Once, Run Them Everywhere



Arquillian Cube is an Arquillian extension that can be used to manage Docker containers from Arquillian. Basically it starts all Docker containers required for your tests, deploys the application (or micro-application) which can be Java based or not, runs the tests and finally stops all of them.

Thanks of Arquillian Cube you can run your integration tests from your local IDE in similar situation as in production environment since in both cases everything is running inside Docker.

But you can go one step forward and you can instruct Arquillian Cube to not start Docker container instances locally (or inside your local boot2docker) but start them in external locations such as your preproduction infrastructure.

Thanks of Digital Ocean that has provided us a free account with some money, we can show you in next screencast how by simply changing one attribute (which could be automated with maven-resources-plugin or just using system properties), we are running the same test against local Docker instance or remotely to Digital Ocean infrastructure.

You can read more about Arquillian and Arquillian Cube in book Arquillian In Action (www.manning.com/sotobueno).

Arquillian in Action goes MEAP


Currently  I am co-writing Arquillian in Action book with my colleague Jason Porter. Last week the book just entered into MEAP stage.

Arquillian in Action teaches you how to to build in-container tests using Arquillian. This practical hands-on guide begins with showing you how to find and squash your first bug. You'll move on to building persistence tests, and then discover how to write tests for front-end and RESTful services. Using carefully-designed examples, the book shows you how to write integration tests for Java EE, Spring, and Docker. Along the way, you'll also learn how to build functional, infrastructure, performance, and security tests.

You can visit http://www.manning.com/sotobueno, read the first chapter for free or you can buy it and start reading the first three chapters of the book.

It is time to start zapping all these bugs with Arquillian.

We keep learning,
Alex.
