User Blog: OpenEJB : Rapid J2EE Development & Testing
Matthew B. Jones writes a great piece, OpenEJB : Rapid J2EE Development & Testing, sharing his team's experience using OpenEJB to aid in the development of their very large JBoss application. His team of 10 has been using OpenEJB since February and by his most conservative estimations has saved 26 man-weeks on deployment time alone. A shocking amount even to our ears.
User Blog: Maven, OpenEJB and eviware soapUI
Magnus K Karlsson has written a nice blog post about using Maven, OpenEJB and eviware soapUI to develop and test JAX-WS Web Services.
The full chain involves creating the Maven, OpenEJB driven unit tests and eventually deployment into JBoss with further testing driven manually via the eviware soapUI tool.
User Blog: Effective Unit Testing EJB 3.0 with OpenEJB
Magnus K Karlsson writes Effective Unit Testing EJB 3.0 with OpenEJB.
As you state quite well, Mangus, many people have had a bad experience with EJB 2.1 and although simpler EJB 3.0 is not so easily testable without a container. Unless of course you use an embedded EJB container like OpenEJB.
We greatly appreciate blog posts like yours as many people try and fail with a few approaches before finally finding OpenEJB. So many more people don't even look for a solution. Blog posts like yours go a long way in helping to get the word out.
User Blog: OpenEJB 3.1 JBoss Embedded and EJB 3.0 unit testing
Nick Mpallas writes in his Nick Says blog an entry titled OpenEJB 3.1 JBoss Embedded and EJB 3.0 unit testing about his month long quest to figure out a way to unit test EJBs. He tries JBoss Embedded first as so many people do and eventually settles on OpenEJB with TestNG and Hibernate.
Thanks for writing, Nick! We're really excited to see more updates about your progress.
User Blog: Restarting the embedded OpenEJB container between each test
Jonas Bandi writes in his CLOSED-LOOP blog a nice entry on Restarting the embedded OpenEJB container between each test. Jonas documents the use of a newer property "openejb.embedded.initialcontext.close" which allows you to destroy the embedded container system after each test.
Note that Maven users can use Surefire Forking to achieve a similar result that will also clear out any embedded database state as well. That approach basically gives you a fresh VM for every test and the approach we use internally in our build. Haven't done any speed comparisons to see how they stack up speed wise.
User Blog: How To Unit-Test EJB 3 ...in 0.8 Seconds
Adam Bien writes in is popular weblog an nice entry called How To Unit-Test EJB 3 ...in 0.8 Seconds. As the subject implies he covers using OpenEJB for fast and light EJB 3.0 unit testing.
Adam has been working on a new project called Project Kenai which aims to take a fresh look at Java EE design patterns. So many J2EE design patterns deal with things which were similified or eliminated altogether in EJB 3.0. It's about time someone came out with some new material.
Great work Adam! Thanks for ensuring your examples run on OpenEJB!
