ExpeccoNET is a separate product which performs requirements and defect tracking, test scheduling and automated execution. ExpeccoNET allows for automatic project tracking by using tests for requirement- and defect validation. ExpeccoNET is available from eXept Software AG. For more information, please <A HREF="http://www.expecco.de">consult the expecco website</A>.
Please ignore this document, if you do not have expeccoNET installed on a machine in your network.
The settings dialog allows you to configure the communication with an expeccoNET server. The expeccoNET server is responsible for the scheduling and automatic execution of test suites, storage of execution results and to keep track of the projects progress by associating test results with requirements and defects.
In addition, it is also used as a central repository for testSuites - both for sharing with other users and for revision control and versioning.
Defines the host name of the machine where the expeccoNET server is being executed.
If in doubt, ask the administrator, which is responsible for the expeccoNET installation and maintenance.
Defines the HTTP port, which is used for the communication. Because the standard HTTP port (80) is both privileged AND often already in use by an apache server, an alternative portnumber such as 8080, 8081 is often used. If in doubt, ask the administrator, which is responsible for the expeccoNET installation and maintenance. (most often, the default 8081 is used).
Your username in the expeccoNET system. This is assigned by the expeccoNET administrator. It is usually NOT your username on the local machine and NOT nescessarily the loginname on the expeccoNET host. If in doubt, ask the administrator, which is responsible for the expeccoNET installation and maintenance.
Your password in the expeccoNET system. Again, this is initially assigned by the expeccoNET administrator and further maintained by yourself in expeccoNET. This is usually NOT the password on the local machine and NOT the password on the expeccoNET host.
Remembering Common Setups
To support the use of multiple servers and/or work under different user names, you can remember a given configuration and give it a unique name, for later retrieval via the "use configuration" comboBox.
