Im very new to TPTP and I am working on a multi-platform distributed
product that would greatly benefit from automated and remote testing.
Our builds would still have to be controlled by an external system, but
the output of the builds can be staged in a common location.
The build artifacts consist of jars, native executables and shared
Test code consists of junits, and native executables.
My understanding of TPTP is that:
* I should be able to distribute these staged builds to remote machines
* I should be able to remote execute junit tests and gather results.
(usual junit reports)
* I should be able to remote execute native (test) executables and report
I was wondering if someone could tell me if my expectations are reasonable
given current TPTP functionality?
Would someone be so kind as to give me a coarse outline of the steps I
would need to follow to actually make this happen?
Are there already tutorials that go over something like this?
Thanks so much in advance!!!

You can have the TPTP Test execution harnness push the builds to the
target/remote host (identified in the artifact file) or run tests on builds
already on the target/remote host (identified in the location file). TPTP
does not provide support for remote command execution from a test (although
you may configure an application running in the Agent Controller to invoke
remotely). The test is executed on the target/remote host.
