Resolution

Change the arquillian dependency from:

        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.jboss.as</groupId>
            <artifactId>jboss-as-arquillian-container-managed</artifactId>
            <version>7.1.1.Final</version>
            <scope>test</scope>
        </dependency>

to:

                <dependency>
                    <groupId>org.wildfly.arquillian</groupId>
                    <artifactId>wildfly-arquillian-container-managed</artifactId>
                    <version>8.2.1.Final</version>
                    <scope>test</scope>
                </dependency>

Root Cause

JBoss EAP 7 does not have the bundles folder, it is necessary to update the arquillian dependency
