Testing and Packaging
Jubula is build using Hudson, Maven and Tycho.
Since Jubula is a GUI test tool it is tested by itself. There are
currently about 25.000 high level test steps executed for a complete
test on one platform. This
test include happy path checking, low level GUI component checking and
cross application checks. All tests are performed nightly on several test
instances covering MS Windows Vista and 7, CentOS 5.5
and Mac OSX 10.7.
Jubula is part of the Juno Release Train and maintains a Testing Package
at the EPP.
The EPP Testing package itself is tested by Jubula. There is a proposal
from the Jubula team to develop and maintain tests for other interested
