TestConsole is a Java based utility used in conjunction with the Novell compatibility test tools. The console is a base framework that the test tools plug into in order to automate test execution in a testing lab or network. It provides a single point-of-control that allows a tester to perform the following functions:
Select from the available test kits and individual tests.
Launch selected tests at local or remote stations in the test network.
Gather the test results from the test stations to a central location at the console.
Generate reports and/or submit reports for Yes bulletins.
TestConsole, by itself, does not provide any testing capabilities. You will need to download and install one or more of the specific Novell compatibility test tools that plug in to the TestConsole.
