JT Harness DocumentationThe following documentation was created to describe the JavaTest harness product upon which the JT harness is based. It describes the JavaTest harness and how to create test suites and components that work with the harness. This documentation is provided solely for your convenience and is not being released under GPL version 2 as part of this project. These documents cannot be modified.
|Describes how to create test suites that work with the JavaTest harness. This manual includes tutorials that introduce you to the JavaTest GUI and help you build your first test suite. The manual also describes how the JavaTest harness works and contains instructions for creating custom components for your test suite.
|JavaTest User's Guide:
Graphical User Interface
|Describes how to use the JavaTest harness graphical user interface to run test suites and evaluate test results.
|JavaTest User's Guide:
Command-Line User Interface
|Describes how to use the JavaTest command-line interface to configure and execute tests and create reports without using the GUI -- this allows you to use the JavaTest harness to run tests in build scripts and other automated processes.
|JavaTest Agent Users's Guide
|An agent is a separate program that works in conjunction with the JavaTest harness to run tests on a system other than the one that is running the JavaTest harness. You can use custom agents or the JavaTest agent provided with the harness to run tests. The topics in this User's Guide describe how to configure and run the agent provided with the JavaTest harness. If you are using a custom agent (for example, the ME framework), refer to your test suite documentation for a description of how to configure and run it.
The JT harness tutorial is available in the binary download bundles beginning with the 4.1.1 release. The tutorial introduces you to the JT harness GUI and some basic underlying concepts. The tutorial instructions have you run a very simple test suite called Demo TS that is included in the examples directory. The Demo TS test suite contains 17 tests that test the functionality of some very simple demo APIs.
To run the sample test suite follow these steps:
- Download the latest JT harness release from the download page
- Unzip the package
