1.1 Preface

The TETware Knowledge Base contains articles which describe how to use TETware to solve particular testing problems. Many of the articles contain information that has previously been provided in response to specific questions from TETware users.

TETware is implemented on UNIX operating systems and also on the Windows NT and Windows 95 operating systems. It includes all of the functionality of the Test Environment Toolkit Release 1.10 (TET), the Distributed Test Environment Toolkit Version 2 Release 2.3 (dTET2) and the Extended Test Environment Toolkit Release 1.10.3 (ETET), together with a number of new features.

Throughout this document, the Windows NT and Windows 95 operating systems are referred to collectively as Win32 systems. The individual system names are only used when it is necessary to distinguish between them.
