Fabasoft app.test AgentPermanent link for this heading

The Fabasoft app.test Agent has to be installed on every client that should run tests. The Fabasoft app.test Eclipse Plug-In provides its own integrated agent, thus it is not necessary to install an agent locally but you can if you want to use the external agent locally, too.

The Fabasoft app.test Agent can be downloaded here:


For installing the Fabasoft app.test Agent unzip the file and start the installer program. This can be done by executing "setup.exe" on Windows systems, or launching the JAR archive (java -jar apptest-agent.jar). Follow the wizard and start the agent after the installation has finished.

Following advanced options are available.
