Hi Shane,

I have managed to run (more or less, with 1 failure and 4 errors) the
new Solder testsuite on AS7 (the jbossas-managed-7 profile)

with the following changes:

1. removing the <forkMode>always</forkMode> from
testsuite/internals/jbossas/pom.xml as it breaks the MavenArtifactResolver.

The other option for this issue is to hack the MavenArtifactResolver to
deal with the way surefirebooter works with forking, see the commented
out parts in MavenArtifactResolver.java in


Arquillian / Shrinkwrap have a proper non-hacky artefact resolver now (called MavenDependencyResolver), I am not really sure how to use it though, you would have to ask Aslak or ALR. 


2. add the "Dependencies: org.jboss.logging,org.jboss.logmanager" to the
seam-logger jar manifest, as no solder test archive gets deployed on AS7
without it.

3. Upgrade arquillian.version and arquillian.jboss7.version to
1.0.0.CR4, as I get


exception with CR1 for some strange reason.

The transitive dependencies have probably changed. I think that class is in arquillian-container-spi.


(org.jboss.seam.solder.test.el.ElTest and
org.jboss.seam.solder.test.resourceLoader.ResourceLoaderTest are broken
because the "targetContainerAdapterClass" hack doesn't work anymore.

Guys and girls,

In the interest of moving things forward, I'm going to shortly start
working on the beta 2 release.  There are still some issues that we're
working through with the multi-container testsuite configuration,
however with some help I've been able to resurrect the existing tests in
Solder to run in the latest version of Arquillian and I'm confident that
I can get the tests in the other modules passing successfully without
too much trouble.  I would still like us to press on with the test suite
work, however I don't want it to hold up the release schedule.

Since the Beta1 release there have been a couple of important changes,
which I'll quickly summarise here:

1) seam-parent is now at the top of the food chain and no longer
inherits its configuration from weld-parent.  This change is good for a
couple of reasons, first of all the disassociation from the Weld project
will help to reinforce that Seam is CDI implementation-independent.
Secondly it gives us total control over configuration for the Maven
plugins that we use, allowing us to update the plugin versions (which
I've already done, to the latest version of each plugin) and fine tune
the plugin configuration parameters for Seam.

2) I've decided against moving the logging feature out of Solder and
into its own module for now, as I discovered that it was too tightly
coupled to Solder to "de-tangle" it easily.  I have however refactored
the logging API classes into their own package, org.jboss.seam.logging
which I think will be more intuitive for our users.  I believe that the
Solder reference documentation still needs to be updated in response to
the changes made for SOLDER-102
(http://issues.jboss.org/browse/SOLDER-102) - Ken, could you please
confirm?  If so, would you be willing to update the reference docs to
reflect the logging changes?

I am aiming for the Beta2 release this coming weekend, which means with
our 20+ modules now I need to get started pretty soon.  If anyone has
any spare cycles and is able to help out with this, it would be greatly
appreciated.  Each module needs to have its tests fixed, logging
refactored to use the new logging API package, and its distribution
thoroughly checked for correctness/completeness.  If you'd like to
volunteer for a module or two, please catch me on IRC and we can work it
out there.
