This session outlines how to effectively test Java EE APIs on GlassFish like JSF, Servlet, CDI, EJB 3, JPA, WebSocket and  JAX-RS. Java EE includes a number of new features that enhance testability like generic dependency injection, CDI @Alternative, portable extensions, embedded containers and JSF project stages.

Using these features and best of breed tools like JUnit and Arquillian it is possible to perform unit, integration, system and functional testing for Java EE APIs at all layers of the application. In addition to discussing tools and features, the session will also demonstrate testing techniques like designing for testability, mock objects, isolation and test configuration.
