Creating a functional test project

You must create a new project or connect to an existing project before you record a new script.

About this task

To create a functional test project:


  1. Create a new functional test project in either of two ways:
    • From the product menu, click File > New > Functional Test Project.
    • From the Functional Test toolbar, click New Project.
  2. In the Name field, type the name of the new project.

    Project names cannot contain the following characters: \ / : * ? " < > | ( ) or a space. If your project is on a UNIX computer, do not embed spaces in the project name.

  3. In the Location field, type the data path for this project, or click Browse to select a path.

    If you use ClearCase®, you must create the functional test project in a ClearCase snapshot or dynamic view. You can add the project to ClearCase later. If you do not create a project in a ClearCase view, you can share the project by moving it to a ClearCase view and adding it to source control.

  4. (Optional) To add the new project to the current solution, select Add to solution.

  5. Click OK.

    If TestManager is installed and you are logged in to a Rational® project, HCL OneTest™ UI displays the message, "Associate the project with current Rational project."

  6. To associate the new functional test project with the Rational project, click Yes.

    When you associate a functional test project you can take advantage of the HCL OneTest UI integration features with TestManager.

    HCL OneTest UI adds the new project to the solution.
