Robert Alexandersson and I am a java software developer that has been doing what I love since 2001. Have been a TDD evangelist ever since 2005, convincing teams I have worked with to test their code well and without made up scenarios (minimal mocking). This test addiction eventually became a java framework that makes it possible to do “real testing” using IoC containers in a JUnit driven test. It contains a base (an adaptive IoC container) and test extension (to run in JUnit) and container adapters as wrappers or emulating other IoC containers (JSR-330, CDI, Spring). Making it possible to assign the same testin principles (alost) to all containers. This was inspired by the Jboss framework called Arquillian.
