The following applications can be installed on windows and Linux partitions: JMeter - regression testing tool(BeanShell library - bsh-xxxx.jar must be added) DbVisualizer - database testing tool (connections to all Db added) SQuirrel database testing tool (connections to all Db added) SmartCVS (Automated Scripts and Custom Tasks repositories added and verified) On the Linux partitions, the applications are installed at /usr/local/. When a user created for you, please, add this user to “staff” group. In order to do it, become a root, go to /etc/, open “group” file, find staff group and add user name there.
