This page outlines how to wrap-up a WebTest release.

Select a Build

Select a succesful build, and fetch all its artefacts (,,, ...).

Preparation work

Following tasks have to be accomplished in Jira:

First, identify, close and assign to the release project all issues that belong to the project. Since this will be used for the release note, consider only the issues that have been fixed, and do not the rejected issues (invalid, ...).

Then, mark the project as released in jira.

Let jira generate the release note for the project, and saves it locally. It may be necessary to correct the formatting, in particular when the subject line contains webtest step names.


Check in subversion module webtest-releases all the artefacts, the release note and a small read-me file.


Once the release is commited, publish it on the website, on the download page and in the news column.

Further, adapt the project reference used in the changeLog to the new jira project.
