About httest Buddy Release Notes Features: What can it actually do? Usage: How to use the editor, JUnit wrapper and commandline tool Screenshots: Show me some pictures!

Release: 0.9.3-alpha, April 1 2012



To start the Swing Editor, either use the Java WebStart launcher on this page, or start the executable Jar file like this:
    $> java -jar httest-buddy.jar


In order to directly execute the httest binary without using the editor GUI, just provide the commandline arguments that httest itself requires. Which is, at the very least, the path of the test script file, e.g.
    $> java -jar httest-buddy.jar mytest.htt
To extract the httest binaries, run
    $> java -jar httest-buddy.jar -binaries
To extract the PDF user's guide, run
    $> java -jar httest-buddy.jar -pdf

JUnit Wrapper

For this you need to add the "htt-java-wrapper-*.jar" file to your project classpath. It is NOT recommended to use the executable jar file "httest-buddy.jar", because that one also contains 3rd-party libraries such as JUnit, SLF4J etc.

To get the "htt-java-wrapper" jar file, download it precompiled from the Downloads section, or download the entire project instead and build it.

For building it, Maven 2 is required. The sub-module "htt-java-wrapper" creates the jar file that contains the base class for unit tests. Check out the test class ch.poweredge.htt.wrapper.HttestTest for an example how to write tests. More documentation on this subject will be added here soon.
