The current Lotus® Expeditor Toolkit startup code automatically configures the test environment, by configuring settings such as the JRE, compiler compliance level, and so on, through the Lotus Expeditor Toolkit configuration wizard.
Using the extension point mechanism, the Lotus Expeditor Toolkit can provide the test environment data in such a way, so that the startup code displays the test environment as a selectable option in the Lotus Expeditor Toolkit configuration wizard. This allows you to select and configure test environments using the configuration wizard's graphical user interface.
The Lotus Expeditor Toolkit, through its extension point, already provides a list of test environments (with their required parameters and values) including the Lotus Expeditor test environment that display through the configuration wizard for selection. Additional test environments can be added to this list using the extension point mechanism.
This section illustrates how to register test environment information through an extension point so the Lotus Expeditor Toolkit configuration wizard can display it for selection and configuration.
