Hi,

I am looking for a unit test management system which can integrate with
our junit tests, collect test results, test coverage and historic test
results. Eventually, I would like to run all my project tests nightly, to
be able to check the results in the morning, and to be able to re-use the
tests as the system grows. I read some articles about TPTP, I seem to get
the impression that TPTP can help my project in managing tests.

Can you please tell me whether I can get TPTP to do what I need? If so,
which version of TPTP should I use? is there any tutorial that I can
follow to learn how to use the system?

I have tried TPTP 4.0, I followed the online help. The system doesn't seem
to be consistent with the online help.

I would appreciate very much any comments.
Sue

Hi Sue,



The general test framework that TPTP offers is great for extending it to
meet your personal needs. The project itself focuses to offer general
standardizations and foundations rather than an environment with countless
features. Currently, the JUnit test suite does provide the option of
importing your existing JUnit files, collecting results in an execution
history file, and generating reports based on the results. The help files
do provide a good starting point on how to use the functionalities. The
help files shouldn't be too off from the application. If that is the case,
please notify us by opening a bug reports (Go to our main page > Click on
Submit Enhancements & Bugs > Report a new Bug > Select TPTP > Open the bug
under the Test.Doc component)



As for your custom needs (e.g. doing periodic executions) I suggest reading
the slides "Building a Custom Test Execution Environment" under the
documentation section of the TPTP website (from the main page, click on the
Documentation link). Review the section "Test Execution Explained" (slide
36). These slides are a little out of date, but they will explain you the
general framework of the test execution.



You can then extend the implementation of IExecutor that is already in place
for JUnit tests to be able to customize it to meet your testing needs (e.g.
periodic execution of test cases).



As for the build that you should download:

3.2.0 is our latest release build

And there are stable builds available under both 3.3 and 4.0



All the above options will include the JUnit functionality.



Thanks for your interest in TPTP.
