Lesson 1: Set up HCL OneTest UI

IBM® provides a Java™ Runtime Environment (JRE) that is installed and enabled for testing Java applications. Use this JRE for the tutorial. When you want to test your own Java or HTML applications, you must run the enabler and configure your environments and applications. For more information on these set-up tasks, see the Getting Started with HCL OneTest™ UI wizard in the First Steps section of the product Welcome. For now you do not need to do anything to use the preconfigured JRE to continue.
