Yes, although there may be some tests that need different containers.
The ResinBeanContainer is a CDI/EJB context (with the usual Resin things
like database configuration), but it is not a servlet environment. (No
ServletContext, no servlet listeners, etc.) So it will work fine for the
key parts of unit testing.
For that need a servlet environment (more toward integration rather than
unit testing), you'd need to use ResinEmbed currently (which is a full
embedded Resin server.) Alex has brought up the idea of creating a
WebAppContainer (or ServletContainer) which is something in between: a
web-app context, but not a full server.
Jon's idea of running subEtha's tests as part of our nightly regressions
is an interesting one, basically a kind of CI testing where we could svn
update to the latest subetha, and run the tests against the current
To make that happen, the subetha testing environment would need to be
pretty self-contained, at least for the tests that we'd be running, i.e.
they'd basically need to work in a bare environment and do any
self-configuration/mocking/database instantiation as part of the test run.
