Publishing test results to Rational® Test Automation Server

The test result indicates the quality of the application under test. Different stakeholders to the application might want to check the quality of application but do not have Rational® Integration Tester installed. You can publish the test result reports to Rational® Test Automation Server so that others can view it from a web browser.
