JBossTS has a substantial investment in DTF tests. However, running these is a complex process, involving building and deploying to a pre-configured DTF instance or installing the DTF locally on the developer's workstation, including tomcat, mysql etc.
Now the DTF is open source and the tests are likewise in the public repository, it would be nice for developers to be able to run them with less hassle, much like unit tests.
This issue is tightly integrated with
DTF-4, which covers provision of the necessary functionality in DTF.
