See Database containers for documentation and usage that is common to all database container types.

final YugabyteDBYCQLContainer ycqlContainer = new YugabyteDBYCQLContainer(

Adding this module to your project dependencies

Add the following dependency to your pom.xml/build.gradle file:

testImplementation "org.testcontainers:yugabytedb:1.19.8"


Adding this Testcontainers library JAR will not automatically add the Yugabytedb driver JAR to your project. You should ensure that your project has the Yugabytedb driver as a dependency, if you plan on using it. Refer to the driver page YSQL and YCQL for instructions.
