JT Harness Binary Distribution
The JT harness is based on Sun Microsystem's JavaTest harness. The JT harness is a general purpose, fully-featured, flexible, and configurable test harness very well suited for most types of unit testing. Originally developed as a test harness to run TCK test suites, it has since evolved into a general purpose test platform.
The JT harness:
JT harness, Version 4.1.1 is a milestone release. It is the first version
that is fully open for contributed development.
Users are encouraged to try JT harness, participate in the community, and contribute to further development.
This binary release contains a built version of the JT harness (
and a tutorial that introduces you to the JT harness graphical user interface.
The JT harness binary distribution is laid out as follows:

Run the JT harness using the following command:
% java -jar javatest.jar
Note: Typically, a user executes JT harness in the context of a test suite. Read the tutorial documentation for instructions about how to execute JT harness with the tutorial example test suite.

Run JavaTest harness, Version 4.1.1 with Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE) 5.0 or later.
Online Help Search Highlighting
The highlighting of search terms in the online help search results is sometimes incorrectly offset due to changes in Java SE after version 5.0_02.
Printing Pages from the Online Help and Test Reports
Because of the method the Java SE platform uses to render fonts, when you print a document from the JT harness user interface, the fonts in the printed documents are larger than they are when rendered on the screen.
The JT harness user's guides are provided in PDF format to make it easier for you to print. While the online help viewer supports printing operations, in some cases you may be unable to use it to print a specific page. If this occurs, use the PDF version.
Serial Communications on the Microsoft Windows Platorm
The Java Communications API used for serial communications does not currently support the Windows platform. Please see the Java Communications API web site for more information.
Changing Status Colors in the GUI
The JT harness allows the user to specify the status colors used in the GUI. See the online help for detailed information about changing the default status colors.
Agent Monitor Tool
The Agent Monitor tool may not apply to all test suites, even if the test suite uses an agent. See your test suite documentation for detailed information about the agent that it uses and its use of the Agent Monitor tool.
