Arquillian meets JRebel

Writing tests with Arquillian is so cool. Our tests are run in container, we can inject various artifacts like EJBs, JMS queues, CDI beans and more into our tests.
But the turnaround for big deployments is too big. Even for smaller ones, if you for example use Seam3 or Hibernate it takes some seconds to redeploy. And those seconds add up.

But I've got good news for you!

AS7 Seam2 LoggingFilter

Seam2 allows us to add user name to each server log entry triggered by that user. This is described id "Identity Logging" chapter. We only need to enable logging-filter in components.xml and add %X{username} to log pattern.

But what if we want more, like IP ?

Mock contexts for Arquillian

Do you have @ViewScoped or @ConversationScoped annotated beans that you want to test with Arquillian?

Do you get "WELD-001303 No active contexts for scope type javax.enterprise.context.ConversationScoped"?

Well now you get mock-contexts-extension to the rescue.
