The testing application is designed to be used as a regression testing tool for testing layout algorithms. The testing application is given arguments that specify the layout algorithm to be used and the file from which the graph and layout attributes are to be read. The testing application can then produce an image of the graph using the algorithm, save the image to a file, and compare the image to an existing image saved in a file.
The testing application is prebuilt only into the
classes-directory of the release package. You will need
to run the testing application, because the graph parser needs it.
To start using the testing application, run it without arguments:
and you will get the necessary instructions.
