IronJacamar 1.1.0.Alpha2 is out

Posted by    |      

The second developer snapshot of the IronJacamar 1.1 container have been released.

The full release notes are here.

Enhanced Arquillian support

We have started to integrate the newer versions of the Arquillian framework, and have enhanced our embedded environment with the possibility to inject IronJacamar objects into your test case by

import org.jboss.jca.core.spi.mdr.MetadataRepository;
import org.jboss.jca.embedded.arquillian.Inject;

public class MyTestCase

   @Inject(name = "MDR")
   private MetadataRepository mdr;

Of course this is considered advanced usage, but can help you verify your deployment state within the container repositories. It also helps us write test cases faster and easier :)

The main thing is the integration of the ShrinkWrap/Descriptors 1.2 series which will give you access to write your ra.xml's with Java using the


packages. Ralf - of ShrinkWrap/Descriptors fame - is working on getting connector10 and IronJacamar's specific descriptors into our distribution too. Hopefully soon XML on disk will be a thing of the past for resource adapter test cases :)

Other goodies

Our AS7 upgrader tool now supports Maven snapshots, so it is easier to try out a hot-fix from us.

The deployer chain saw some updates too in order to give better feedback on invalid configurations. Hopefully that will help people getting started quicker. Remember, we have a user guide with a description of the XSDs ;)

And we found a nasty bug too...

The Road Ahead

Our main focus is still on the AS 7.1 series, so keep the reports coming. We enjoy the feedback !

For Those About to Rock, We Salute You !
