Product Version


Product To Version



In the previous version, the PipelineRule only requires the EmbeddedServerRule as a prerequisite. The PipelineRule itself creates a test site and application context. This leads to conflicts when you try to combine these test rules with other rules that create an application context as well.

To prevent this, this part of the application context creation is no longer available.

New PipelineRule Usage

To create a PipelineRule use this approach:

    public final EmbeddedServerRule server = new EmbeddedServerRule(this);
    private DomainCreatorRule domainCreatorRule =;
    private PipelineRule pipelineRule = PipelineRule.builder().build();
    public RuleChain ruleChain = RuleChain.outerRule(server).around(domainCreatorRule).around(pipelineRule);

Just add the DomainCreatorRule to the rule chain.


Do not forget to add the @ForceApplicationRule to the test method or test class.
