jtharness used as an distributed application acceptance framework
I just tumble accross JTHarness.
I'm wondering if this tool could be used as a base to create test framework, to test a distributed application based on java.
basically, we need to :
- deploy the app's components in a distributed environement
- configure these components based on a scripted test plan
- execute the test plan
- gather results
- generate reports
say i have a JXTA based app, where each peer can provide, ask for certain services to each other via both cmdline clients, GUI based apps, or front end protocols queries.
is that thinkable, or is that out right impossible.
from the little i saw, it seems that jtharness, is well suited for API test, but could be twisted into a higher level application testing framework.
