Using TestData

The data available in this module is accessed via the TestData class; this class is able to smoothly access and unpack data that has been bundled up into a jar; it is able to handle some of the platform differences that have cropped up over the years.

Example use:

Code Block
InputStream in = TestData.openStream( this, "" );
Properties properties = new Properties( in );
assertTrue( properties.contains("something") );

For more information please review out developers guide entry:
