Running Tests

Running tests is done with Taurus Tool and explained in detail on dedicated Test Running doc page.

If you get the error java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class org.jfree.chart.JFreeChart when the plugin generates the charts, is because you have running an XServer in the jenkins machine. Set the property -Djava.awt.headless=true when starting your servlet container. Note that this normally does not happen when running the embedded servlet container Jenkins is packaged with (Jetty).!topic/jenkinsci-users/o_Dr7Tn0i3U
