CTS User Guide
A Java EE 8 CTS is a set of tools and tests used to verify that a licensee's implementation of Java EE 8 technology conforms to the applicable specification. All tests in the CTS are based on the written specifications for the Java platform. The CTS tests compatibility of a licensee's implementation of a technology to the applicable specification of the technology. Compatibility testing is a means of ensuring correctness, completeness, and consistency across all implementations developed by technology licensees. The set of tests included with the Java EE 8 CTS is called the test suite. All tests in the CTS test suite are self-checking, but some tests may require tester interaction. Most tests return either a Pass or Fail status. For a given platform to be certified, all of the required tests must pass. The definition of required tests may change from platform to platform. The definition of required tests will change over time. Before your final certification test pass, be sure to download the latest Exclude List for the Java EE 8 CTS.
About JavaEE8 CTS
Java EE 8 CTS is a portable, configurable, automated test suite for verifying the compliance of a licensee's implementation of the Java EE 8 technologies. Java EE 8 CTS includes version 5.0 of the JT harness.
For documentation on the test harness used for running the Java EE 8 CTS test
The following section lists the hardware requirements for the Java EE 8 CTS software, using the Java EE 8 RI or Java EE 8 Web Profile RI. Hardware requirements for other reference implementations will vary.
All systems should meet the following recommended hardware requirements:
- CPU running at 2.0 GHz or higher
- 4 GB of RAM or more
- 2 GB of swap space , if required
- 6 GB of free disk space for writing data to log files, the Java EE 8 repository, and the database
- Network access to the Internet
You can run the Java EE 8 CTS software on platforms running the Solaris, Linux, Windows, and Mac OS software that meet the following software requirements:
- Operating Systems: – Solaris 10 and newer – MAC OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1+) – Windows XP SP3, Windows 2008 R2 – Oracle Linux 6.4 – Fedora 18 – Ubuntu Linux 12.10 – Suse Enterprise Linux 12.2
- Java SE 8 SDK
- Java EE 8 RI or Java EE 8 Web Profile RI
- Mail server that supports the IMAP and SMTP protocols
- One of the following databases: – Oracle – Sybase – DB2 – Microsoft SQL Server – Postgres SQL – MySQL – Java DB
Additional Java EE 8 CTS Requirements
In addition to the instructions and requirements described in this document, all Java EE 8 and Java EE 8 Web Profile implementations must also pass the standalone TCKs for the following technologies:
- Contexts and Dependency Injection for Java 2.0 (JSR 365)
- Dependency Injection for Java 1.0 (JSR 330)
- Bean Validation 2.0 (JSR 380)
Install CTS bundle
Complete the following procedure to install the Java EE 8 CTS on a system running the Solaris, Linux, or Windows operating system.
- Copy or download the CTS 8 software.
- Change to the directory in which you want to install the Java EE 8 CTS software and use the unzip command to extract the bundle:
cd install_directory unzip javaeetck-nnn.zip
This creates the javaeetck directory. The install_directory/javaeetck directory will be TS_HOME. 3. Set the TS_HOME environment variable to point to the javaeetck directory.
Install Apache Ant
- Download the latest version of Apache Ant from the below link
- Change to the directory in which you want to install Apache Ant and extract the bundle
tar zxvf apache-ant-<version>-bin.tar.gz
- Set ANT_HOME environment variable to point to the apache-ant- directory.
- Set PATH environment variable to use the installed ant.
Setup and Configuration
You can modify the following test suite components only:
- Your implementation of the porting package
- ts.jte environment file
- The vendor-specific SQL files in <TS_HOME>/sql
- Any files in <TS_HOME>/bin and <TS_HOME>/bin/xml (except for ts.* files)
Configuring the Java EE 8 RI as the VI
To configure the Java EE 8 RI as the server under test (that is, to use the Java EE 8 RI as the VI) follow the steps listed below. In this scenario, the goal is simply to test the Java EE 8 RI against the CTS for the purposes of familiarizing yourself with CTS test procedures. You may also want to refer to the Quick Start guides included with the Java EE 8 CTS for similar instructions.
- Set server properties in your <TS_HOME>/bin/ts.jte file to suit your test environment. Be sure to set the following properties: a. Set the webServerHost property to the name of the host on which your Web server is running that is configured with the RI. The default setting is localhost. b. Set the webServerPort property to the port number of the host on which the Web server is running and configured with the RI. The default setting is 8001. c. Set the wsgen.ant.classname property to the Vendor's implementation class that mimics the RI Ant task that in turn calls the wsgen Java-to-WSDL tool. The default setting is com.sun.tools.ws.ant.WsGen. d. Set the wsimport.ant.classname property to the Vendor's implementation class that mimics the RI Ant task that in turn calls the wsimport WSDL-to-Java tool. The default setting is com.sun.tools.ws.ant.WsImport. e. Set the porting.ts.url.class property to your porting implementation class that is used for obtaining URLs. The default setting for the RI porting implementation is com.sun.ts.lib.implementation.sun.common.SunRIURL. f. Set the database-related properties in the <TS_HOME>/bin/ts.jte file. g. Add the following JVM option to the command.testExecuteAppClient property to enable the Security Manager in the application client container: -Djava.security.manager Add this option to the list of other -D JVM options for this property. As mentioned previously, these settings can vary, but must match whatever you used when setting up the Java EE 8 RI server.
- Install the Java EE 8 RI and configure basic settings, as described in
- Start the Java EE 8 RI application server. Refer to the application server documentation for complete instructions.
- Enable the Security Manager. If you are using the Java EE 8 RI, execute the following command from the command line:
asadmin create-jvm-options -Djava.security.manager
- Stop and restart your application server so it is running with the Security Manager enabled.
- Change to the <TS_HOME>/bin directory.
- Start your backend database. If you are using Derby as your backend database, execute the start.javadb Ant target:
ant -f xml/impl/glassfish/s1as.xml start.javadb
Otherwise, refer to your backend database administration documentation for information about starting your database server. 8. Initialize your backend database. If you are using Derby as your backend database, execute the init.derby Ant target:
ant -f xml/init.xml init.derby
- Run the configuration Ant target.
- Build the special web services clients. The special webservices tests under the webservices12/specialcases directory have prebuilt endpoints, but the clients are not prebuilt. The clients will be built after the endpoints are first predeployed to the application server under test. During the build, the clients import the WSDLs (by means of the Java EE wsimport and wsgen tools) from the predeployed webservices endpoints. This process
verifies that importing a WSDL from a predeployed webservice endpoint works properly. To build the special webservices clients, the following command must be executed:
Running tests in CLI mode
- Set the TS_HOME environment variable to the directory in which Java EE 8 CTS was installed.
- Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to the latest version of JDK 8
- Set the ANT_HOME environment variable to the latest version of Apache Ant installed.
- Set the PATH environment to use the latest binaries.
- Change to any subdirectory under <TS_HOME>/src/com/sun/ts/tests.
- Ensure that the ts.jte file contains information relevant to your setup.
- Execute the runclient Ant target to start the JavaTest:
This runs all tests in the current directory and any subdirectories.
- To run the Java EE 8 CTS signature tests, enter the following commands:
cd <TS_HOME>/src/com/sun/ts/tests/signaturetest/javaee ant runclient
- To run a single test directory in the forward direction, enter the following commands:
cd <TS_HOME>/src/com/sun/ts/tests/jaxws/api/javax_xml_ws/Dispatch ant -Dkeywords=forward runclient
- To run a subset of test directories in the reverse direction, enter the following commands:
cd <TS_HOME>/src/com/sun/ts/tests/jaxws/api ant -Dkeywords=reverse runclient
