Test configurations define how your code is analyzed and tested, including which static analysis rules are enabled, which tests to run, and other analysis parameters. Jtest ships with built-in test configurations, but users can create and store their own test configurations in the DTP server (see the DTP documentation for details).

User-defined test configurations that are stored in DTP can be downloaded from the DTP server and stored in the [INSTALL_DIR]/configs/user directory as *.properties files. 

Running a Test Configuration

You can specify which configuration will be run in one of the following ways:

If you use Ant or Maven, you can specify the test configuration with the following pattern:

<config>user://Configuration Name</config>
jtest.config=user://Configuration Name

Viewing Available Test Configurations

Use the -listconfigs switch to print the available test configurations. 

Use arguments to filter configurations; the use of "*" expressions is supported

Built-in Test Configurations

See Built-in Test Configurations for information about available built-in test configurations.

Creating Custom Rules

Use RuleWizard to create custom rules. See the RuleWizard User Guide for information about RuleWizard capabilities and usage.

To use the rule, it needs to be enabled in a test configuration and the custom rule file must be located in one of the following directories:
