More about standalone version...

1. RCP standalone application
Initially ecFeed was implemented as an Eclipse plugin and designed to work with Java code. We now believe however that the tool become generic enough to provide it as a standalone application. The main differences between the Eclipse plugin and the standalone version is that in the standalone version the model is not connected to Java project and source code, which means:
– you can’t easily switch between the code and the model,
– you can’t see if the modeled test function is implemented,
– you can’t control the test execution from the application,
– you can’t import existing code to a model,
– you can’t export the model to code stubs.

However in the standalone tool you still can:
– build a test model using all the features that the GUI of the Eclipse plugin provides,
– generate test data with ecFeed’s powerful algorithms,
– save the model to an .ect file that will later be opened in Eclipse or used by ecFeed runner to execute jUnit tests written in any IDE,
– open .ect files that were saved in Eclipse,
– export test data to a custom text format (xml, csv, or gherkin .feature file).

2. Installation and running ecFeed standalone version
ecFeed standalone is a Java application that does not require installation. Just download the version for your OS and unzip it into an empty folder. You will see two folders: ‘eclipse’ and ‘repository’. The ‘eclipse’ folder contains ‘eclipse’ executable (‘eclipse.exe’ in Windows version). Double click on it to start. For your convenience there is ‘ecfeed.[sh|bat]’ file in the top folder to start the application.
