Using the graphical user interface

The graphical user interface (GUI) of Rational® Test RealTime provides an integrated environment designed to act as a single, unified work space for all automated testing and runtime analysis activities.

This section describes the features and capabilities included within the GUI.

GUI Philosophy

In addition to acting as an interface with your usual development tools, the GUI provides navigation facilities, allowing natural hypertext linkage between source code, test, analysis reports, UML sequence diagrams. For example:

  • You can click any element of a test report to highlight the corresponding test script line in the embedded text editor.

  • You can click any element of an runtime analysis report to highlight and edit the corresponding item in your application source code

  • You can click a file name in the output window to open the file in the Text Editor

In addition, the GUI provides easy-to-use Activity Wizards to guide you through the creation of your project components.
