TPTP can be installed through the Eclipse Update Manager or by using the packages available for download below. If you are new to TPTP, you may want to refer to the Installation
Guide and Release Notes documents for information about TPTP and its various installation packages before downloading. Please refer to the JRE and OS support statement for a complete list of supported configurations.
Note that TPTP requires Java 5 or higher. In addition to the TPTP plug-ins, the stand-alone Agent Controller should be downloaded if you would like to profile Java applications on a remote machine. It is also required for
local application profiling on the IPF platform.
TPTP Plugins for Eclipse
Install TPTP plugins by unzipping the zip file to an eclipse install directory. Make sure all requirements are also installed.
1 Required by TPTP-WTP integration. 2 Required by TPTP-BIRT integration.
The TPTP all-in-one package and the TPTP Platform subproject downloads contain an Integrated Agent Controller. The following download is for a
stand-alone Agent Controller and only needs to be installed if you want to:
enable client applications to launch other applications remotely (e.g. collecting profiling data from a remote machine). In this case, the Agent Controller needs to be installed on the remote machine.
use Agent Controller technology on Windows or Linux on IPF.
The Agent Controller technology in this release contains a backwards compatibility layer, allowing it to replace the prior Agent Controller technology on Windows and Linux platforms and to interoperate
with the prior Agent Controller technology on the other platforms supported in earlier versions of TPTP. Users should refer to the Installation Guide v4.6 for information on
Agent Controller platform support, installation, and configuration.
Java 1.5+ (JVMTI) Profiler
The Java 1.5+ Profiler SDK package contains code and libraries for developing profiling tools for Java.
Note that the Runtime files are already included in the Agent Controller (Runtime) download above.
Build-to-Manage Runtime Library
Build-to-Manage Runtime Library
A library that allows users to execute applications instrumented using TPTP's Build-to-Manage toolkit in a standalone environment, such as an application server.
API Recorder Framework
TPTP's API Recorder allows users to record API invocations of local/remote Java applications based on user-defined filters (package/class/method/signature).
Recordings may be converted into TPTP JUnit test suites for unit and regression testing of the recorded Java application.
Build-to-Manage Toolkit for .NET
Tooling that allows users to instrument and/or build applications that can be managed by using TPTP's Managed Agent Explorer, which is a user interface that allows manipulation of managed resources by setting properties and invoking operations.
Previously General Availability (GA) or Technology Preview components are primarily provided for prior users but imply no support (for example, defects, news group, and mailing lists).
There is no commitment to triage or resolve opened defects. In order to be considered, submitted patches should include code and test cases to support the fix.
Automated GUI Recorder
The Automated GUI Recorder (AGR) is used to record and playback user interactions with an Eclipse application.
Manual Test Tools
The TPTP Manual Test Tools are used to create, manage, and execute manual test suites for manually testing applications by human testers based on textual test descriptions.
Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) Test Reports
Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) Test Reports are used to aggregate and summarize numerous test executions over a period of time.
The BIRT test reports present test executions in tables and charts so users can easily locate trends and effectually analyze.
Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) Log Reports
Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) Log Reports are used to aggregate and summarize numerous Common Base Event log events.
The BIRT log reports present Common Base Event log events in tables and charts so users can easily locate trends and effectually analyze.
Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) Trace Reports
Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) Trace Reports are used to aggregate and summarize numerous profiling events over a period of time.
The BIRT trace reports present profiling events in tables and charts so users can easily locate trends and effectually analyze.
Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) Statistical Reports
Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) Statistical Reports are used to aggregate and summarize numerous statistical events over a period of
time. The BIRT statistical reports present statistical events in tables and charts so users can easily locate trends and effectually analyze.
Native logging is an implementation of Common Base Event v1.0.1 for use in C/C++ environment. The runtime package contains the library to be used in the runtime environment. The SDK package contains code and library required for developing with this common base event implementation and a sample for illustrating how to use this implementation.
