Unit Testing EJB's


EJB programming & troubleshooting: Unit Testing EJB's

  1. Unit Testing EJB's (2 messages)

    I've been working on coming up with something to provide an easy way to unit test our EJB's. I'm currently using JUnit and calling test suites from a servlet. I'm currently having some issues with testing from different security contexts, but nothing that can't be solved. Anyway, I'm wondering what others are doing to test EJB's?

    There is a pretty decent article on the subject at:

    We ended up writing a test harness that uses a script plus reflection on the EJBs to provide a solution. We were aided by the fact that all EJB methods receive and return (XML) Strings so there wasn't a big issue about providing paarmeters.

    The tool is actually used more for regression testing than for unit testing but is useful for the latter.

    Empirix (once RSW Software) just released a new version of their EJB testing tool, Bean-test 4.0. It can be downloaded at http://www.empirix.com

    Bean-test does EJB unit testing but also EJB scalability testing to see how your EJB performs under all these customer load conditions.

    Note: I think it's a GREAT tool, but I work there!
