Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Karaf distribution testing
Date Fri, 26 Nov 2010 13:47:00 GMT
Hi Guillaume,

About the kit and examples test, I think we can use XHarness[1] which  
is an extension to Ant that helps simplify the process of automating  
command line based task.
We've done it with FUSE ESB CPI test and it can verify the kit and  
examples works as expect before release.
The XHarness is really convenient for launching script and checking  
output both from stdio and log, it should be very suitable to do the  
task like distributing smoky test.


Best Regards
