Plug-In Implementation

The principles of the API are based on widely known Java Beans concepts. This allows developers to easily implement test launch plug-ins. To avoid putting textual information in Java code, meta information about properties is defined in an XML file.

The plug-in implementation is packaged in a zip archive and implements a callback interface so that it can be integrated. Other interfaces are in turn provided by the plug-in framework and allow the implementation to access information or return results.
