Importing functional test project items

You can import project items such as scripts, test object maps, Java files or Visual Basic files, and datasets into a Functional Test project.


  1. Select the project in the Project view and click File > Import from the Functional Test menu. In the Import wizard, select Functional Test Project Items and click Next.Right-click the project in the Solution Explorer and click Import.
  2. In the Transfer file field of the Import project items page, enter or navigate to the data transfer file name that was used to export the project items.

    To view and work with items in the data transfer file, you can use any file compression program that support the .zip format. You do not have to extract files in the .rftjdtr .rftvdtrextension file before importing.

  3. In the Select the import location field, use the navigation buttons to select the Functional Test project into which to import project items.
  4. Click Finish.

    If the project already contains any of the assets you are importing, Rational® Functional Tester displays the Select items to overwrite page.

  5. Select the items that you want to overwrite in the project or clear the items that you do not want to overwrite and click Finish.
    • If you use ClearCase®, Rational® Functional Tester checks out as unreserved the project items you want to overwrite, and leaves them checked out after overwriting. You must add the newly imported items to source control.
    • When you overwrite a script, Rational® Functional Tester overwrites all the necessary files associated with the script, such as the test object map and the dataset. Other files in the project associated with the overwritten script, such as verification points, are deleted.

    Rational® Functional Tester adds all the project items from the data transfer file into the project you specified.
