SIMPL Testing Framework Installation Instructions


This source code is completely self contained. It will not pollute your source tree.

An assumption is made that you have already downloaded and installed the latest SIMPL code.

Step 1: Download the framework source tar.gz file to your system if you have not already done so

Step 2:To undo the gzip'd tar file simply perform the following steps:

This will create an $SIMPL_HOME/testing tree and place all of the existing SIMPL test scripts there. It will also populate the $SIMPL_HOME/scripts area with the SIMPL testing framework wrapper scripts.

Step 3: Setup the framework

You'll need to create an environment variable called TEST_HOME which for this particular framework is pointed at $SIMPL_HOME.

export TEST_HOME=$SIMPL_HOME

If the $SIMPL_HOME/scripts is in your PATH you can simply type

seetest i

to verify that the installation is correct. You should see a list of the SIMPL tests.

Step 4: Have fun with this framework.

If you have any problems, comments or suggestions for improvement don't hesitate to contact the SIMPL project mailing list.

There is an online course that utilizes the SIMPL testing framework interface.

There are a couple of other open source projects which make use of the SIMPL testing framework
