Linux / Solaris

Installation on Linux requires that JAVA SDK is installed with the appropriate environment variables set.

Installation on Linux

JAVA

The standard Linux distributions contain normally no preinstalled JDK (Java Development Kit from Oracle). Therefore you have first to install the original JDK 1.7 from Oracle.

In case you have installed the JDK from Oracle by downloading the “Java SE Development Kit” .tar.gz file please ensure that the PATH to the java JDK is available for all OS processes. Therefore you should add the PATH to the binaries of the “Java SE Development Kit” to the following files (require root privileges):

  • /etc/environment
  • /etc/profile

Example for /etc/environment:

PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games<span style=" color: #F00;">:/java/jdk1.7.0_80/bin"

PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games<span style=" color: #F00;">:/java/jdk1.7.0_80/bin"

Example for /etc/profile:

if [ -d /etc/profile.d ]; then

for i in /etc/profile.d/*.sh; do if [ -r $i ]; then

. $i fi

done unset i

fi

PATH=$PATH:/java/jdk1.7.0_80/bin export PATH

if [ -d /etc/profile.d ]; then

for i in /etc/profile.d/*.sh; do if [ -r $i ]; then

. $i fi

done unset i

fi

PATH=$PATH:/java/jdk1.7.0_80/bin export PATH

Note: Depending on your Linux distribution it might be also necessary to set the environment variable JAVA_HOME which should point to the “Java SE Development Kit” main folder. Example:

JAVA_HOME=/java/jdk1.7.0_80 export JAVA_HOME

Once Java is installed proceed as follows:

  1. Download ZBA55**<minor version>.bin and save it in your home folder.
  2. Open a terminal and change the file permission of ZBA54<minor version>.bin so that it can be executed:
chmod 755 ZBA55<minor version>.bin
  1. After that start the installation by entering:
./ZBA55<minor version>.bin

Note: ZBA55<minor version>.bin can be deleted after installation.

During the installation a popup window is shown which generates a new default license, or shows your existing license if ZebraTester was already installed earlier at the same location.

Note: You must click the Apply button in order to store the new license.

Open now a File Manager window and navigate to the ZebraTester installation directory.

We recommend that you drag the files ZebraTesterConsole.desktop and ZebraTesterGUI.desktop to the desktop.

Start ZebraTester by clicking first on the ZebraTester Console icon, and then by clicking on the ZebraTester GUI icon.

Alternatively you can also access the GUI by starting any Web Browser and entering http://127.0.0.1:7990 (Firefox or Iceweasel recommended).

The Recording Extension is also supported on Linux systems which allows the Recording of Web Surfing Sessions in a convenient way.

If you have multiple versions of Java installed then you should ensure that ZebraTester is using the right Java 1.7 version (Oracle 7 JDK).

Click in the ZebraTester GUI on Project Navigator > Settings <span class="p">and verify and/or modify the path to the Java 7 compiler and to the Java 7 interpreter:
