Has anybody used testmaker for testing a j2ee app?

It's probably unfair of me to answer this question. It may also be better to ask the TestMaker user community the same question as lots of people use TestMaker to test J2EE applications. The user community discusses things on users@lists.pushtotest.com.

Hope this helps.

Hi Frank,

I think I wrote the question incorrectly. I downloaded the zip file from your website. Is there any documentation how to use that in a web application?

Thanks for your time

Hi Mary: There is a lot of documentation on TestMaker. Take a look in the download for testmaker_home/docs for a tutorial. Also, take a look at http://docs.pushtotest.com for on-line documentation and links to the articles that have been published about using TestMaker.

Additionally the TestMaker user community is reached at http://lists.pushtotest.com/mailman/listinfo/users

Hope this helps.

--From docs\tutorial.html

To run TestMaker:

Windows users run the testmaker_home/TestMaker.bat file. This file executes a simple shell script that configures the local classpath and launches the TestMaker application.


Linux users run the testmaker_home/TestMaker.sh file. This file executes a simple shell script that configures the local classpath and launches the TestMaker application.

What do you mean by nothing happened? Are you trying to run it on a Windows machine or ?

Did it give you an error message like this?

Cannot start TestMaker
JAVA_HOME environment variable not set
see http://www.pushtotest.com/FAQ/faq.html#InstallationProblems

Open a command prompt and try runing the bat from there. At least you will be able to find out the problem.

You might see something if you open a dos/command window and run TestMaker.bat from there. Then the window wouldn't close on you before you can see if there is an error.

While you're at the command window type command to sure it's using 1.4:

%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java.exe -version

I am thinking at 2 possible problems:
1. wrong JAVA_HOME variable
Try the following: open a command prompt and type:
%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java.exe -version
If you see information about java it is oke. If not pls correct the JAVA_HOME to point to the install dir of J2SE and not to the dir containing the java.exe

2. Edit the bat and modify the following piece:


into


Open a command prompt in the directory with the bat and launch the bat from the command prompt.

The script seems oke. Please try what Carol is suggesting:
%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java.exe -version.
