2022 April Release

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.

Installer Options

// starts the setup with a graphical user interface
java -jar apptest-agent.jar

// starts the setup in a non-graphical console guided mode
// if X-forwarding is configured on Linux systems this will only work if the

// DISPLAY variable is unset before running the setup (unset DISPLAY)

java -jar apptest-agent.jar -console

// generates a template file for install options (no setup is started)
java -jar apptest-agent.jar -options-template <optionsfile>

// performs the setup with the options file
java -jar apptest-agent.jar -options <optionsfile>

// uninstalls the agent
java -jar "<install path>/uninstall/uninstall.jar"

java -jar "<install path>/uninstall/uninstall.jar" -console

Downloading chromedriver and msedgedriverPermanent link for this heading

If a version of Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge is tested that was not available at the time of the release of Fabasoft app.test a corresponding web driver binary is downloaded from https://chromedriver.storage.googleapis.com or https://msedgewebdriverstorage.z22.web.core.windows.net, respectively.

If no connection to the Internet is available, a local mirror can be used. The APPTEST_EDGEDRIVER_LOAD_URL and APPTEST_CHROMEDRIVER_LOAD_URL environment variables define the alternative URLs for download. The APPTEST_DRIVER_LOAD_URL_CREDENTIALS environment variable defines the used credentials (<user>:<password>).
