JT Harness Binary Distribution
The JT harness is based on Sun Microsystems' 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 4.2 is a milestone release. We encourage you 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:
javatest.jar, the JUnit binary jt-junit.jar, and support libraries.

Run JT Harness with Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE) 5.0 or later. Note that the search capability in the online help does not work correctly after Java SE 5.0_03.
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 harness user interface, the fonts in the printed documents are larger than they are when rendered on the screen.
The JT Harness User's Guide has been provided in PDF form for your use in printing pages from the documents. 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 of the appropriate User's Guide to print the page. Printing of non-HTML report types is not supported. Users are informed of this when they attempt to print a non-HTML report type. Support will be added for this in a future release.
Changing Status Colors in the GUI
JT Harness allows you 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.
