Abstract

JEPN (Java End Point Network) is an xml based tool for distributed environment test automation. The architecture is composed of a light java end point to install on each cpu and capable to execute only four basic actions: 1) Command execution and output sending, 2) File download, 3) File upload and 4) File customization. The end points can be commanded in a centralized way, first defining cpus and tasks in an xml text file, than using a java gui or a command line capable to open the file and to launch the defined tasks on a cpu or on a group of cpus. The xml commands are sent to remote cpus and their command outputs and exit values are collected and sent back to user.
