Starting a Test Session
To start your test session, set up the Agentry test environment, and import an Agentry client project. Start the client, log in to the test server, then use the test tools. You can stop the client at any time.
- In Eclipse, install the Agentry Editor plug-in.
- You must have access to a configured test server and database.
- The test client application must be published to the test server; defined, configured, and loaded on the server; and ready to serve definitions and data to connected clients.
- To start the test client, you must import an application project into the Agentry Editor.
- To specify how the client window is managed, set Agentry test environment preferences.
Test environment client data is stored with the Agentry project that is open in your workspace. Since test environments for Agentry projects are maintained independently of one another, you need not reset your test client each time you switch to a different project.
- Although you can use only one monitor, but you might want to use two monitors for testing (for example, show Eclipse on one monitor, and the Agentry test environment on the second).
- For ease of use, maximize the Agentry test environment window.
- In Eclipse, you must open an Agentry perspective. Click Agentry (Diagram)). (or
- Import an application project; for example, using .
From the Editor menu, select
.If you are using two monitors, drag the Agentry test environment tab onto the second monitor.
In the Agentry test environment view, select
.The test client window opens.
- From the Select Agentry window, log in and enter the test server URL when prompted. For example: https://<server_name_or_address>.
Use the Agentry test environment tools to test the Agentry test client, for example, select
a different platform, force a transmit, use debugging tools, and test locales.
Use the status bar to check current settings and status. N/A indicates that the Agentry
project is not open.
Status Description Client Status

- STOPPED ‒ the client is not running.
- Indicates the platform, for example, Android, iOS, or Windows.
- Blank indicates that no platform is selected.
- A URL indicates that an initial transmit has completed for the server.
- Blank indicates that the initial transmit has not completed for the server.
- ON ‒ the server debug feature has been requested.
- OFF ‒ the server debug feature has not been requested.
- ANCHORED ‒ the Agentry test client window is anchored.
- FLOATING ‒ the Agentry test client window is not anchored (default).
Current Locale Indicates the currently selected or default language, regardless of whether the project is open and the client is running.
- At any time, you can stop the test client by logging out or exiting from the application.
