Even with the first beta still on the horizon, Arquillian has already begun to transform the enterprise testing landscape, making the formerly untestable testable.
The early influence of the Arquillian project is the result of a legion of community members integrating their diverse skills to flatten the barrier to integration testing. The collaboration across projects and across communities is truly inspiring. It's safe to say that not only is the Arquillian invasion on, it's well ahead of its release schedule. And that's awesome. And the growing community is the reason why.
Noble Ike, the Arquillian prince, and the core project team, would like to recognize the community members that have helped shape Arquillian during each release cycle, either through code contributions, participation or advocacy. For donating their time, effort and patience to make Arquillian a better testing framework for the benefit of the community, we award each of them the title Arquillian Noble.
The Arquillian Nobles page on the project site lists the recipients along with the contributions they made. Contributors are awarded for either a specific release, or for general support of the project. The names of the community members crowned so far are listed here (for reference):
Lincoln Baxter III
Community members may be crowned for multiple releases. Once a contributor becomes a member of the core team, subsequent contributions are not called out (team members are noble by default).
In addition to being listed on the Arquillian Nobles page, we are working to get a crown added to each recipient's JBoss Community profile so that it is globally visible. We'll announce when that's available.
The more container adapters and extensions we create, the more power we put in the hands of the developer, and the better enterprise software will become. Feature transparency FTW!
Thanks to all the Arquillian Nobles, present and future, for making Arquillian awesome and for simplifying testing to child's play!
