It is pretty much good to go for an alpha release, as most of the functionality that was
outlined in the original spec has been implemented, as well as some stuff that wasn't.
Also there are docs and an example, although the docs are rather rough at the moment and
are not going to win any literary awards.
A major piece of functionality that is still missing is the ability for portable
extensions to register their own custom namespace handlers. So if your module needs some
extra configuration that can't be adequately expressed by wring up beans using xml it
will be possible to register a custom namespace, and include whatever xml you need in the
beans.xml file. I am planning on implementing this in the next few weeks, but I could move
it up if anyone desperately needs it.

Subject: Re: [seam-dev] Testing seam modules
Arquillian 1.0.0 Alpha 1 was released today (see the announcement ). Seam module
developers are now encouraged to officially start using it**. Hammer on it, let us know
what things would make testing even easier and more effective.
Pete also pushed out a release of the Weld extensions, which includes both a logger and a
classpath resource loader .
The combination of these two releases removes most of the outstanding barriers to ramping
up Seam module development . The major outstanding item that remains is Stuart's
XML bean configuration module, but that's pretty close to release as well (I'll
let Stuart fill in details there).
Let the games begin :)
** Keep in mind that the API may still change, but not likely in a way that would make it
a challenge to update the tests.

Arquillian is the future of the integration testing (anything beyond a unit test) for Seam
3, the CDI TCK and probably the JBoss community in general (though that will take some
Please give it a try and stop by the Arquillian forums if you have questions or feedback.
 We don't have a release out yet, so you need to compile from source. We should be
getting an alpha out the door pretty soon ;)
Jordan is one of the first Seam 3 module drivers to use Arquillian, so you can use his JMS
module as a reference.

To test the Seam 3 JMS module I've been using JBoss Arquillian:
. It's extremely easy to use and has been
working for in container testing on JBoss AS 6.0.0.M1 and now M2. The guys heading up
Arquillian have been working hard on it.
