Salome-TMF has found a new leader (last update 01/02/2010)

Salome-TMF has found a new leader to support its development and provide support to its users.
Orange Labs R&D, initiator of this test management tool, is glad to see ACPQualife take the lead of the Salome-TMF open source project.

« The Salome-TMF Project has been initiated by Orange Labs R&D in order to promote Software Engineering to research projects level, and then to France Telecom group development. The three year old Salome-TMF project, has reached an industrial maturity which enables having new partners specialized in software qualification to follow up its development, evolution and also animate this project in a dynamic collaborative open source way » Mikael Marche, at Orange Labs R&D, Salome-TMF creator.

2010 will be a new start for Salome-TMF which will integrate new testing methods and technologies of the future.

How to V2.x (or V3rc1) to V3

Uncompress SalomeTMF V3 archive, and copy paste the files 'cfg/' and 'cfg/key.txt' from v2.x (or V3rc1) installation in the new installation directory. Be sure that the following parameters are presents in your configuration file:

  • SQLEngineSOAP = false
  • DBLOCK = 0
  • LockOnTestExec = false
  • LockExecutedTest = false

Use Java WebStart to launch Salome

In order to use Java WebStart to launch Salome, you have to edit salome.jnlp and each plugin_name.jnlp to update the field codebase according to your http server host and the path of SalomeTMF in this server. Uncomment also, in salome.jnlp all references about plug-in that you have installed (remove <!-- and --> ).

Auto Update (last update 10/11/2006)

Since version 2 of Salome-TMF, you can automatically update code improvement with salome_tmf_auto_OW_update tool, for that :
  • Download the file salome_tmf_auto_OW_update.jar and place it in the root directory of SalomeTMF
  • Carry out the command java –jar salome_tmf_auto_OW_update.jar
(in option it is possible to give a proxy configuration to acces to the internet, use java –jar salome_tmf_auto_OW_update.jar proxyHttpHost proxyHttpPort)

The auto update tool upgrade all jar of SalomeTMF and those of the plugins installed without modifying any configuration files and the data base.

Java Web Start boot

The last release (2.1.2) of Salome-TMF proposes a mechanism of boot via Java Web Start. This boot loading to be used only in the event of remote installation on a server, speed the loading of Salome-TMF by managing a local cache. To use it, in Salome-TMF root directory, modify salome.jnlp codebase entry according the location of Salome-TMF on your server, then load on your browser salome.jnlp. (You can also create a desktop shortcut using jaws tool, read this for example)

The new version of Salome-TMF is available, in more of the corrections, this version includes a plug-in for the management of the requirements, two plug-ins of management of defects, one for Bugzilla (2.16.x and 2.20.x), the other for Mantis (0.19 and 1.0) , and one new plug-in for the automation of tests of Java IHM based on Abbot. (for migration see how to V12V2)

Salomé-TMF is an independent Test Management Framework

Test management is the set of activities that enable the management of testing processes. Testing means a lot of bookkeeping if it has to be done efficiently. What are the test cases in a given test suite? What are the results of the execution of a given test campaign? Those are the two most basic questions that a test management tool (or set of tools, or framework…) should enable to answer for a given testing process. But a test management tool can offer a lot more features, enabling for example to launch automatic test campaigns, to publish the test results, to link test cases with requirements and defects etc.

Salomé-TMF is a simple and powerful testing tool which offers immediate profits in time and quality thanks to the creation of a single reference frame of test for the project and with the automation of the carrying out of the tests.

Main features

Salomé-TMF is an independent Test Management Tool, which helps you to manage your entire testing process - creating test scripts, executing tests, tracking results, produce documentation, and more.

  • Organize your test cases and your campaign in hierarchical tree structure
  • Define manual tests (sequence of actions) or automatic (programs or scripts of tests)
  • Define several environments under tests in a project
  • Parameterize your manual and automatic tests and carry out them on several environments
  • Track results associated with test execution on an environment under test
  • Attach files or urls on the data managed by Salome-TMF (test, execution, environment, etc)
  • Extend Salome-TMF according to your requirements with your plug-ins
  • Etc.

Plug-ins features

  • Use Beanshell and Junit plug-ins to define your automatic tests
  • Track defects with the Bugzilla plug-in
  • Export of documentation to HTML supported by MS Word with the GenDoc plug-in
  • Export/Import data from projet to over with the GenDoc plug-in
  • Plan your automatic execution (by night ?) with the cronExec plug-in

Salomé-TMF architecture

Salomé-TMF was built using Java Applet, MYSQL and HTTP server. However, several other open source tools were used in development and are incorporated in the tool.

How do I get Salomé-TMF support and contact?

You should contact us via the forum for help on installing or using Salomé-TMF. However, if you find an issue that doesn't need immediate support please file it on the Bug tracking.
