[hibernate-dev] [OGM] Embedded MongoDB for tests

Hi all,

I just came across across "EmbedMongo" [1] which provides a way to run
MongoDB embedded within an application. This is e.g. convenient for tests
as it doesn't require a separately installed MongoDB instance.

I've tried it out with a single test and it worked as expected.
Unfortunately MongoDB (the server) can't be retrieved as Maven dependency,
EmbedMongo thus retrieves the distribution via HTTP and stores it in
~/.embedmongo/. This only happens once during the first usage.

What do you think, would that be helpful to be used for the OGM MongoDB
tests (it might well be that this or similar options have been discussed
before and I just missed that)?
