Local and agent computers
When you associate a Functional Tester project with a Rational project, you can use TestManager to run your Functional Tester scripts on computers that you designate as Agent computers from a single Windows computer, called the Local computer.
You use Agent computers to perform these tasks:
- Run scripts on more than one computer. If you are running a test, you can save time by running the scripts on the next available Agent computer instead of running all scripts on the Local computer.
- Test different machine configurations. If you are testing various hardware and software configurations, you can run scripts on Agent computers that are set up with different configurations.
- Run Functional Tester scripts remotely on Linux or Windows computers. If you run Functional Tester scripts remotely, enable environments and configure applications on the Linux or Windows Agent computers. For information, see the Rational Functional Tester Installation Guide.
Note About TestManager Integration: Functional Tester is integrated with Rational TestManager version 7.0.2. If you have the 7.0.2 version of TestManager, you will be able to use the integrated features of Functional Tester and TestManager.
