Subject EJB unit testing available

I just wanted to put this on everyone's radar in case it wasn't  
already known.  Those of you writing EJB applications run on Geronimo  
have an extra advantage that those applications can be easily unit  
tested by embedding the Geronimo EJB container (OpenEJB) into your  
test case.

This sort of in-container unit testing technique is something we've  
been innovating for a while and is likely to be a major addition to  
the EJB 3.1 specifications.  I strongly encourage anyone doing EJB  
development to check this out.  There are a number of examples  
available here:

The net result of this is that you should be able to quickly unit test  
your ejbs in your build as you would test a plain java application.   
With good EJB unit tests you'll get much faster development, fewer  
build/deploy cycles, and be able to quickly catch basic deployment  
issues that stem from incorrect or non-compliant apps.
