Activate Package Resource Tester


Test integrity of files in the package as a preliminary measure before submitting an Activate Product Package to Marketplace.

The Activate Package Resource Tester command line tool is designed to check that a ready-to-submit Activate Package has been bundled up correctly. It checks to see that each package contains all the necessary files and that the files were properly made. In particular, tests are run for verifying that the files do not link to personal folders, the files are in proper format, customization files are created properly, and resources are all unique as well. The Resource Tester verifies that all the components needed in the bat file are present.
