About Test Settings

You can configure project-specific settings for Parasoft test execution and code analysis tools (C/C++test, dotTEST, Jtest, SOAtest). When the tools are connected to DTP, they import and use these settings, which enables you to centrally configure code analysis and test execution properties. The settings specified in the tool's .properties file, however, take precedence over the settings configure in this section. See the specific tool documentation for details on available settings.  

  1. Choose Report Center Settings from the settings menu.
  2. Click Projects in the Administration tab and click on a project. 
  3. Enter your settings in the Parasoft Test Settings section. Enter each setting on a new line. Use the # character to add comments.


    You can also click the information icon in the label for additional information and to view example settings.

You can also configure the settings for all projects. See Configuring Parasoft Test for All Projects

About File Encoding

By default, DTP assumes that source code is encoded in UTF-8. If the source code is encoded with a different character set, you can specify it in the Parasoft Test Settings form by adding the property. For example:

You can configure this setting for individual projects or for all projects if all source code is encoded in the same way. See Configuring Parasoft Test for All Projects for additional information.

Auto-configuring Code Analysis and Test Execution Tools

Set the dtp.autoconfig property set to true in the Parasoft tool's .properties configuration file to enables the tool to use the settings configured in DTP. See the documentation for your tool for details. 

For example, the following settings would be added to the test execution and code analysis tool's configuration file:

scontrol.svn.exec=C\:\\Program Files\\svn\\bin\\svn.exe

This would enable the tool to use the following example configurations set in the Parasoft Test Global Settings field:


Displaying Source Code from Source Control System
In some cases, settings reused by Parasoft tools and DTP require further customization. For instance, DTP may require different SCM credentials than the tools.

Auto-configuration can still be used by adding the server. prefix to identify the setting as a DTP Server-only setting. In the following Parasoft Test Settings, the SVN executable directory is specified for the Parasoft tool with the scontrol.svn.exec setting, but for DTP the directory is set with server.scontrol.svn.exec:

scontrol.svn.exec=C\:\\Program Files\\svn\\bin\\svn.exe

DTP prioritizes the server. prefix value if the same non-prefixed also appears.

The following precedence of overwriting settings is used in DTP when the same setting appears in Parasoft Test Global Settings and project-specific Parasoft Test settings:

  • Project specific Parasoft Test Settings with server. prefix
  • Project specific Parasoft Test Settings without server. prefix
  • Parasoft Test Global Settings with server. prefix
  • Parasoft Test Global Settings without server. prefix
