    Re: test harness

    In general Test Harness is a custom build automated testing tool that allow technical and functional personnel to test an core component of an application or a system by providing necessary input parameters. Based on the input provided the Test Harness will test the components/application/system and provide the detail log of the tests carried out.

    These Custom build Test harness are flexible when compared to the other script based automation tools since, these are not written based on specific environment unlike the scripts.

    These Test Harness are written using languages like perl, TCL/TK etc.

    If incase you question is regarding Perl's Test::Harness module, refer to the documentation http://www.perldoc.com/perl5.6/lib/Test/Harness.html

    Re: test harness

    A test harness can also be a tool to substitute for missing elements of the application (e.g. to facilitate delivery into test of core components in advance of the full system). In this case, the test harness is a structure to emulate the missing pieces. I make this distinction because a Test Harness is often used for manual testing as well as for automation.

    Re: test harness

    THX for the clarification---i was almost on my way to rename my "manual test harness" to something else.
