4.2.2 Setting up an RCP AUT for testing

If you want to test a Rich Client Platform application, you must first unzip our "RCP Remote Control" plugin into your AUT . This can be done as follows:

  1. Locate the Jubula installation directory.
  2. Extract the content of the rcp-support.zip folder into the plugins directory for your RCP AUT .
    \includegraphics[height=2cm]{lightbulb} When you install a new version of Jubula , you must repeat these steps with the new RCP remote control plugin. We recommend starting your AUT once with "-clean" to ensure that the new remote control plugin is used.
  3. RCP applications generally have a configuration/config.ini file which contains the parameter osgi.bundles. This parameter may need to be modified to allow the RCP remote control plugin to load on AUT startup. The org.eclipse.update.configurator plugin automatically loads all plugins found in the plugins directory, which means that the RCP remote control plugin should start with the AUT if org.eclipse.update.configurator@3:start is already defined in the osgi.bundles parameter. Otherwise, you may need to add org.eclipse.jubula.rc.rcp to the end of the osgi.bundles parameter.

If you do not follow the above steps, the AUT Agent will not be able to communicate with your AUT !
